Let me tell you about how miserably I am failing at writing poems of substance this week.
I AM FAILING MISERABLY AT WRITING POEMS OF SUBSTANCE THIS WEEK! (So. Bad.)
Folks, I have reached the point where I would rather dig my eyes out with spoons than open up my notebook and do nothing more than stare at blank pages. Or, open my notebook and force myself to start writing, only to find that I am writing total crap. I mean, some of the lines I have been churning out read like stuff I would have puked up in the 9th grade after being dumped by a boy with better hair than I, followed by listening to my Lisa Loeb and Cranberries CD's on repeat. Ick. Let me tell ya, that is not a good head space to be in when trying to write decent poetry.
At any rate, I'm going to wrap up this little jewel of a blog post and take the rest of the day off from reading and/or writing poetry. Perhaps tomorrow will prove more fruitful. In the meanwhile, imma go dig out my Cranberries CD and "let it linger". (Yes, I have to. Yes, I have to. Yes, I have to let it linger.) Ahahahahaha!
