A Literary Train Wreck

Written by: Jack Ellison

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
