Gee, how was it been a month already? (Or another poem)

So, you know how I said I had two other poems to add? Yeah. I just realized that I posted that a month ago, and the poems have been hanging out in my folder. Because I am lazy. So lazy. I wrote this one directly after Worry, and then I was going to wait a day or two to post, and you can see how well that went. So, without further ado, I give you Stuck In My Writing Voice. Enjoy!

 

I am stuck, now, in my writing voice,

Where thoughts are said somewhat sadly,

And all things have cadence,

Even if it is inconsistent.

 

I am stuck, now, in my writing voice,

Where commas magically become,

Wistful sighs,

And periods require more pause,

Than pads.

 

I am stuck, now, in my writing voice,

Where I may change formatting

And no one shall care,

Because. This. Is. A. Poem.

 

I am stuck, now, in my writing voice,

Where I really can’t speak too fast because then no one has any idea what I’m saying and I get lots of odd looks and requests for deep breaths.

 

I am stuck, now, in my writing voice,

Where everything mustn’t have prose,

Instead, illogical imagery is immensely invited,

And all audiables are annoyingly assumed and awaited as alliteration.

 

I am stuck, now, in my writing voice,

But soon inconsistent cadence (No matter how foolish),

The endless sighs,                                                                                                  after a comma,

thE CHANGe in hOw WordS are WRITTEN,

Shall soon all change because really this is getting rather old and I have other things to do,

So say, sadly, some soft sendoffs,

To my writing voice.
