Too many ellipses! 😉 Also, who says I can’t do lighthearted? Anyway, I was being bugged by my brain to write something, but it refused to tell me what, so I came up with this. It’s a poem with each successive line growing by one syllable. Enjoy. 🙂
Something in my mind lurks and flits.
I’ve many ideas, but this won’t fit.
A spark, a light, a wisdom, an insight.
I must write– recite, anything but this plight.
Like a fly, buzzing by, vexingly out of reach
I could cry, for though I try, yea, I even beseech
This– This something remains unperturbed, grinning, undisturbed
Enough say I. Cease! No more! And my inspiration is curbed.
I know, I’m sorry you wasted your time reading this, now go away before I get more inspiration.
