A Literary Train Wreck

Poetry is my most recent passion That's got me by the scruff of the neck Grabbed me a couple of years ago Not getting much sleep, I'm a wreck Sure didn't know when I started all this It would ignite this fire in my soul That rages consuming every damn moment Two poems a day is my goal This Poetry Soup site sure is addictive First thing in the morning I'm there To see who's reviewed my latest entries Did they think I wrote them with flair? Late into the night I'm feverishly editing Tweaking the words to the last A few things still really bug me though But time's running out really fast Trembling I go to the “post poem” prompt I click it then patiently wait A feeling of anxiety creeps over me As I sit there awaiting my fate © Jack Ellison 2012

    Jack, relax. A wordsmith extraordinaire are you-- Pleasing all with thoughts so true. If sleep is cheated now and then. Please go easy on your pen-- He is giving us delight-- Think its worth a sleepless night! Victoria

    You think it's bad to be addicted to writting? Well, I'm addicted to reading them... LOL I had been gone for a while and spent the whole day catching up... It was a very enjoyable day, indeed.
