Should I ask or should I not?
Should I speak or should I just nod?
Should I state how I feel?
Or should I be looking at my feet?
My head’s abuzz with thoughts and words
My mouth just seems to strike me dumb
I’m scared to say what’s on my mind
Afraid it might not come out right
So I keep my thoughts where it belongs
Ensuring my mouth doesn’t make them fall
But what do I do with all those thoughts
Thoughts that threaten to come out in a burst
I think and take a paper and pen
And jot them down right till the end
Till that moment when my head’s empty
And begin the process of getting ready
To get filled once again with thoughts and words
Till I get that feeling that it’s just gonna burst
But now I’m ready with paper and pen
To note those words right till the end
Due to unfortunate circumstances I will not be able to write any new poems for NaPoWriMo for the next few days. Though I will certainly write using the prompts and upload them post the challenge (whenever feasible). I am trying to write using the first week’s prompts and upload them. But there are no guarantees. In the meantime, I have scheduled poems that I had written much earlier, for the remaining days of NaPoWriMo. It is cheating of sorts, but, I really do not want to quit it halfway through. Heartfelt apologies to anyone and everyone who reads, likes, comments and follows my blog. Although I would appreciate your feedback. It is through those that I try and get better at writing. To all the friends that I’ve made and hope to make during this year’s NaPo challenge (and post it too!), I’m cheering you on! Best wishes and good luck from a blogger friend.
