Spinning tales of temporary things
Which do not need to be continued
Yet the words spin, drawing more from the passing thought
Then it requires
Filling the gap, they come spilling from my tongue
I hear them gushing
Where does the geyser lie
Under the skin
In the lungs?
Sticking to the roof of my mouth
Bubbling up like saliva
I grow bored with the sound of the voice
In my head
Choose quiet instead
But it never ceases
Watch it steadily for a moment with focus
As if to swat the fly
Yet just as agile the mental voice waits on that bated breath
It speaks again
How awful to live
In this never silent head
That continues to write even when I have said
I would rather
*July! Ha it laughed – no thanks a week off is all you get. Other social media can stay silent but not the blog.

Ha, glad that your muse kicked in!!! 😉
Lol it’s like an itch you try not to scratch!
Ha, I thought you were taking a break away from social media!
Glad that you’ve come to realize that our WordPress blogging community is nothing like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Though I’m not always able to fulfill my commitment of writing a post once a week, I enjoy staying connected with bloggers like you within my network 🙂
Hi Rosaliene oh I realised WP was different to other social media. I can’t begin to work up the oomph to deal with other social media at the moment but I love WordPress. I was more concerned that I wasn’t getting any other writing done but have since realised that any writing is better than none and we don’t always get to choose so to stop worrying about it. Hence my return to my blog hoping that without the distraction of other social media (that serves no purpose) I will get the rest of my writing done as well. Back to the beginning – just WordPress feeding my creativity big and extending to my other writing work….before I over complicated it all. Lovely to be back in touch.
Heh, heh, heh … there you are! 😀
Couldn’t help myself 🙄😂
Welcome back, Kate. That rest was short and sweet.
It was highly enjoyable and sorted the chaff from the hay Len. I now know I can’t be without WordPress but am staggered to a halt on what to do with Twitter and Instagram accounts – the solution will find me eventually no doubt.
