Sentenced


It’s no fun when you
Want to write and few words are 
There on your page though
Thousands lodge within your brain –
Sentenced, without release.

    Hi, Sherese every now and than sentences are the worst words we can't force out. it is kind of a pleasure when i can't spit out what i really want to say...lol... I don't really think people would read my poetry if i was to flush out what is really lodged in my mind. Maybe you don't know what I'm saying...but i surely know what you are talking about. I can relate to this. Especially the no fun part. I always tell my fiance my mind is a secret and won't release it all.. Sherese, thank you for sharing your tanka and stopping by my page.. xox~PD

    VERY cool, writing about the desire for writing sentences using the word sentenced to show they are trapped! Love it.
