frantic

back and forth and back and forth
she's rocking in her head

back and forth and back and forth
she might as well be dead

back and forth and back and forth
and back and forth and back and

stop

and forth and

stop

and

STOP
STOP 
STOP
STOP 
STOP

    1. Well, I wrote it so I guess I made you tired. I sent you an email asking if I can interview you before I review your book. How's about it, ducky?

    1. Kids will do that to you. Then they grow up and either they move in with you and you can't get rid of them, or you hardly ever see them.

  7. Youngest has decided that he's not moving out until he has enough money saved for a house, cuz he doesn't think having a mortgage sounds appealing. So I think he'll be making me crazy (and providing blog fodder) for even longer than the next 7 years.

    1. Good! Not that I want you to be frantic, but poets love to give words to feelings that can be difficult to describe.

  13. This piece just screams frantic! I love it...but it makes me sad too. I hate when I can't shut my brain down.
