Nothing to see here folks…

So far… so good. I said I’d start writing again, and I’m managing to do just that. It’s been, what? Three days? Four? Oh shit! It’s been SIX whole days! Yeah, baby. Look at me go! Lol :)

Ok, I guess I should not start bragging six days in. LOL Especially when I’m just rambling and posting gibberish. Besides, I know that it’s always easy when I first start back at it.

This time does feel different, though. At least a little. I mean some things never change. I start reading through old posts…. old friends blogs… and I realize just how… repetitive so much of my writing seems… so much of my ramblings. Same old struggles with certain things… certain insecurities… certain long-lived issues. Doesn’t help when I find drafts to poems that I started writing YEARS ago, and get inspired to work on them rather than coming up with new material. Eh? That’s life, I guess. You can take the girl out of the blog, but can’t take the blah out of the girl…
Or something like that. ;)

Seriously? Write now?

I must be busy.
I must be stressed.
I must feel overwhelmed
and not know where to start.

I must not have time
to do all the things I feel
like I should have time to do
if I could just focus.

I must not have time
to write poems, or journal
about insignificant ramblings
running ramped through my mind.

I definitely don’t have time
for such nonsense now.
I am so busy
accomplishing nothing
that I can’t admit
I must write.

Looking Up

wandering thoughts caught
frozen in shades of gray, still
she was looking up

Almost Me

Slowly, I’m coming into focus,
I think. One pixel at a time.
I can almost see

All that I once was, elements lost
and found, miraculously, settle in
to what I am now. Leaving room
for hope and whatever I might be.  And,
through squinted eyes, and breath
held tight, I can almost see, almost believe

Slowly, I’m coming into focus,
finally.  One pixel at a time.
I can almost see the me
I want to be.

Again

how soon we forget
yesterday’s slippery slopes
’til footing gives way
