Slippery Slope


My mind is slanted

Any drop of idea

Runs deftly to the edge

A suicidal plunge

Falling and failing

Just a stain

Left far below


One chasing the next

Adhesion perplexed


Becomes master

Random disaster

Nothing sticks

Yet stuck I am


Am I tired

Or uninspired

Have I given

Is cupboard bare

Or am I just

Out of balance

And unaware

    I don’t think your cupboards are bare. Have you looked in all the cupboards?

    I’m sure you will find your spark again, my dear.

    Then, for some unknown reason, the words come the next day. Did they take the day off?

  5. You may be all those things….except unaware.

    I get that feeling on a pretty regular basis. However you are such a prolific writer Brad and your work is amazing so I don’t think you have anything to worry about. Jonikins
