Ants and Angst

Finally got around to writing on paper Actually writing— seems like forever My pen flies, runs away with my chicken scratch much like a chicken running away with its head cut off Better write this… feeling’s bearing down on me— just niggling Ever felt that way? Like there are 999 fire ants biting you They crawl…bite… just everywhere and you wish that you can just die You wait for that final fatal bite --but it never comes simply because it needs that 1000th ant It’s the magic ant with the final deadly bite So you are tortured forever You keep scratching, itching, hurting Never really knowing where to scratch since the itch is everywhere and nowhere at all Pretty frustrating and so I just sigh. Fire ants biting my heart. *** Wrote this one because of the Ants in my towel plus I was feel angsty O_o Gosh, that was crazzzzyy! Good thing I felt some of those ants biting me on my shoulders and arm--then I stared at my towel and aaack, it made my skin crawl--yeeek!! Haha had to take a shower again-- *shudder* just thinking about it-- so nope, not for any contest ;)
