An escape from reality.

An escape from reality.

  1. C. J. Black

Today, there is a lot of screaming and shouting going on inside my head

Write it down, write it down get it out of your system put this poem to bed.


It becomes quite difficult trying to write what you cannot see

But once you do it, a mighty relief believe you me.


Being realistic when putting first impressions down

They must first be honed and polished or people are sure to frown.


Who do you share your initial thoughts with or do you keep them to yourself?

Perhaps you leave them laying around – occasionally removing them from the shelf.


Not that I have a problem should someone wish to take a peek

Just don’t be disappointed as my first draft is usually weak.


Where do they go, those thoughts which surface then quickly disappear

Somewhere out in the universe floating around in the atmosphere?



Here’s a mesmerising thought, what if somewhere in outer space

There are aliens trying to interpret William Butler Yeats.

  1. Haha. Can you imagine it? I’d not mind WB Yeats it’s Shelley who drew a blank with me.
    Congratulations on your listing for the blog awards. I was delighted for you. Now you must put up your precious badge.

  2. First drafts may occasionally
    Require a little tweak,
    But Hemmingway was wrong,
    It’s not necessarily weak,
    If you write from the heart,
    And keep to yourself, true,
    Believe in what you write,
    As we all believe in you.

    Best wishes from baldy
