I want
to have lived in

are not the final words to cross
my lips.

Help! My Mind is a Blank

Blog Posted:11/19/2021 12:01:00 PM

One of the tools I use when my mind is a blank is a poem generator. Now, I do not use an entire generated poem, because, let me be honest, the poems generated are complete nonsense, but once in a while the generator will come up with a great line which I will use to jumpstart a poem, such as this line "We were waiting for the world to sing."
I used that line to create this poem  

WAITING FOR THE WORLD TO SING

We were waiting for the world to sing, 
I did not realize you had my heart on a swing 
Until I felt the sting 
Of falling with broken wing, 
That for you I was only a fling.  
 
The poem generator I use is found at borredhumans.com

 

Girl, Swing, Long Dress, Bouquet, Art

More avenues of inkling are welcome Chetta, thank you! some, even, like to write everyday, that would be cool! for me, issues and feelings to inkualize are backlogged, such as waiting for a moment in my left-handed brain to force a lyrical expungement on said topic, like my most recent comparing senior living complexes to puppy-mills, thoughts cohabitating over many encounters...
