As far as writing goes, really writing, it’s been a while
and I really don’t have anyone to blame but myself.
Each year I feel as though summer has this way
of knocking me off my feet (both in good ways and bad)
and boy did it hit me this season.
My head is as clouded with thoughts as ever and yet
I can’t seem to ever get them down on paper.
So they just sit there, all these thoughts and words,
swarming around beneath my skull,
pushing me deeper and deeper into the ground.
I’d love to share my thoughts with you,
if only you would listen,
if only my hands would get to work.
