Pencil to screen and back again
Each day, every night, I translate the voices
Post about them, about me where my mind’s been
The days I stop, I regret my choices
Prompts, ideas and ways to reveal
I leap at the chance to show more
Call it addiction, it seems like a wheel
That never stops turning, my mind’s at war
I think what I’m trying in this peculiar way
Is as long as I keep writing, I’ll own my name
I’m the maker of the music i wish to play Every day is something, it just always seems the same.
This is a a little something different for two prompts. Trifecta Writing wanted a poem in 333 words, 3 lines or 3 stanzas. http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com/ The Lighting and The Lightning Bug wanted me to speed write for ten minutes. I originally wrote this a few weeks ago, hated it, then rewrote it over ten minutes. http://thewriteandthewrongword.blogspot.com/2012/05/flicker-of-inspiration-52-speed-writing.html This will eventually be turned into a Helene troy song.
Today’s song is about my anxiety disorder. Don’t interpret the lyrics literally. But Trent Reznor’s captures mental illness well,in this song, Here’s Nine Inch Nails Every Day Is Exactly The Same.
