Uncharacteristic rhyme tonight. There’s something about this poem that I really love. I almost didn’t write one, just thought maybe I’d let the TV drown out thinking until falling asleep, but I couldn’t just ignore my inner poet fighting to come out. She didn’t want to be ignored and I’m so glad I listened.

I’m happy you listened to your inner poet. My screams pretty loud all day long! Nice lines…Have a great evening 🙂
Thank you! Mine screams all day long too. It’s when I try to ignore her that things get messy.
Agreed. Usually when I start thinking ignoring, that means it’s time to switch forms for a while! I’m on ‘sabbatical’ from free verse exploring a sh*t-ton of versed poetry! Cheers and have a great day 🙂
I’ve never really gotten into versed poetry for some reason. I think I’m way too much of a free spirit (or that I don’t have enough patience)! I commend you.
Thanks! I have to go back and forth. I must have quarreling spirits in me 🙂
I’m glad you did too
I read this in a half-awake state last night, and re-read it this morning, and it only got better. Excellent poem and I like the rhyming xx
Thank you so much! I’m honored that you gave it MULTIPLE reads!
When the voices stop you don’t know what they’re up to so let them keep on.
Well said my friend.
