I am a poetry addict
I keep inkwells scattered about
to collect my random thoughts
I hoard pens and pieces of paper
hide them in every crevice
I need to hear the sound of words
clip-clopping across the page 

Do not try to save me from myself
I understand me better
when I can describe a tear as it forms
in the corner of my eye and meanders
down the planes of my face to drip
onto a piece of cake poised on a fork

I am unstable
I must be to untangle the letters
tripping over themselves in my mind
and form expressive words
I count meters and syllables in my sleep

I wander off     though I never leave
I am just dreaming of the poetry found
in an empty swing swaying without wind
Stage an intervention for me and I will write 
you a poem about the power of selfless love

Poetry is    
Yesterday's sorrow
Tomorrow's beauty
Today's life in its many disguises

For which of these is there a remedy?

    Ahh!! I understand..I find myself talking out lines that are running through my head..Yes, those egg beaters reminded me of two ballerinas dancing..The kitchen has become a place of entertainment..Thanks for the visit..Sara
