Headphones
to occupy my attention,
a half-blank paper of
potential poetry in front of
me, and my
second favorite
pen in hand.

This is my therapy.

I don't have to write,
to make real my thoughts,
I don't have to think
about what scares me.

I don't have to live
or be a personality.

Beauty of Evanescence
gives my crazy
mind something to
focus on, and so
I can relax, free.

Such is my therapy.

I know, this pretty much sucks... I'll be writing a completely new version at some point, but this is my sketch, if you will.

I dunno Lady I guess you spoke the words for me,but i will put them nicer then that. As they should be. Yes the poem wasn't exactly up to what you usually could,but at most what you was trying to portrait is what count. In that I can say yes I see where your coming from and It will be a great poem.

What do you write with your favorite pen?

I loved the 'potential poetry' idea!

well lady, maybe you just threw this together, and you have a better one in the works, yet i thought this one was well done, and possesses real emotion, i can relate to getting lost in music, it happens to me often

Lady, I recall being your age, doodling on a blank page in one of my class notebooks. Pondering life and my current lady of the hour, writing idle thoughts and thinking I had life figured out.

Age and time have changed my perspective, but sometimes I wish I had saved some of those old poems written with my "second favorite pen".

Lol, guess y'all saw it sucks too grinning smiley Means it really does! I will work on it. It's an idea I've been toying with, in one form or another, for years, actually.

What do I write with my favorite pen? Not usually poetry, although sometimes. Whenever I find my poetry book, I'll tell ya which ones.

My "second favorite pen" is actually literal. My favorite is the black Pilot G-2, and the one I have is similar, but a different brand and it writes a little differently.

Thank you everyone for reading, I appreciate it.

Listening to music can help to organize your mind.
I find that music inspires me.....it sometimes points me in the right direction.
As far as poetry is concerned, this is actually not a bad piece.
I see what you are thinking, that makes this effective.

Jean-Paul,

I agree that music can help, and it helped me not to think of all the men in the bus station that I was positively terrified of. I never realized how scared I am of men until that day.

Brucefur,

YES, you do! Oh, and you need to critique this piece, too winking smiley
