Overcoming Bloglessness

Daily Prompt: Unleash Your Inner Dickinson


Daily Prompt: Unleash Your Inner Dickinson.


You’re asking me to write a rhyme,

as if I have that kind of time,

as if a poet writes like that,

on demand,

two seconds flat.

These things take time

and pondering.

It could take years

of wandering

and suffering,

to make it real,

is not a thing I care to feel.

I’ll write a rhyme

another time.

For now,

I’m busy

drinking wine.

For many years I have suffered from debilitating bloglessness, only writing in my head, while everyone else posted and shared with ease. Previous attempts at recovery have failed, my secret journals edited to death, pages torn out, crumpled and trashed. I will not succumb to this embarassing condition. I will continue to struggle against the rampant backspacing and endless blank staring. I refuse to relapse into the void that is bloglessness. I can do it. I am doing it. I am Overcoming Bloglessness.
