Thoughts in my abscence

Although I don’t write much, still I think
Not gaining really in this mindless quest
Too much thinking pushes me to the brink

No longer able to swim I’ve begun to sink
Each new day offering the same old test
Although I don’t write much, still I think

Brief moments of hope, that last a blink
Just bring a short smile at the very best
Too much thinking pushes me to the brink

When times like this came I used to drink
In that state, even I myself, I did detest
Although I don’t write much still I think

Day by day my hope increasingly shrinks
The very soul I doubt, cries for some rest
Too much thinking pushes me to the brink

My life is like a chain, missing one link
Too be dragging through, I feel as a pest
Although I don’t write much, still I think
Too much thinking pushes me to the brink

    A very good poem and I'm glad that you can still think. I too was not writing much, I'm just recovering from a major surgery. I started writing again. Thanks for sharing this and keep on writing....Lucilla

    Ah the old thinking too much trick. I suffer from the same disease. In fact I believe that many poets write because their minds have temporarily gone to other places.

    Thinking is good. Wayland, i like the way you can rhyme with a word, and keep stick with the same flow..I tried to do a poem like that once..LOL. All I got was 6 lines. Anyways, i like the way you compare yourself to a chain... haha. I got plenty of extra links in my jelwery box. Would that help... OOO, I'm kidding with you. I know how you feel. My mind is like a puzzle. always missing a piece or two. Enjoyed~ Linda
