So-called poem

Have I lost it?
The writing thing?
Have I been absent for so long that my thoughts are unable to come to a 
complete stop and decide to focus...on
I shudder profusely and then shake....
shudder...shake...doesn't that mean the same thing?
God....this feeling of complete talentlessness is absolutely....bad?
For the sake of being poetic I come up with...bad...seriously!!!
My fingers move at a snail's pace to keep up with the dismay that wants spill its 
inerts on this screen in front of me and it will take the hand of God to prevent me 
from actually not deciding to hit the delete button and feel justified in my 
Ok...I'll leave it alone
be the cheerleader of this...piece...yea.

    Good morning Karina! Alright, I have no pompoms or powderpuffs, but I'll certainly be your cheerleader!:) Poetry is a wonderful means of self expression, and in this piece, you've done a great job! Like a monologue of thoughts, that I know I've encountered more than once. I don't believe that you're a 'bad', there is much passion and self- expression, and this is surely what it's all about!? I hope that you'll have a beautiful Christmas..God bless you and yours...Love, Mikki
