I have sat myself down to write

some sage advice, or words of great wisdom

but I have none to give to you today


I can only emote, to give you some idea of what I feel.

Yes! That is an idea!

Perhaps I can share some feeling instead, or illuminate some misplaced value in your mind.

to accomplish some greater good?

or not.

It all comes to nothing now.

as I sit in my darkened room, and wistfully wish for words.


Me :D

think you just did speed!

but hey, been there

wrote a poem about how I couldn't write a poem

that's kind of breaking the ground isn't it?

a poet suggested this to me: go to a place where you can observe people discretly (like a coffee shop or something) and absorb their lives for a bit.

I keep meaning to try this, because I think it would be excellent.

I do that a lot.There is a coffee shop wherw I like to hang out a lot. I was there this morning and could not seem to feel settled.

I'm trying to capture something that I have been feeling and pit it into something meaningful, but I keep running into a dead end with it.

Me :D

Hmm... that's a serious annoyance...


maybe you should write about what it is not?

let the reader figure it out...:)
