"Exhausted," quoth The Bard Of Bawn

my word today:
exhausted.
up 'til midnight,
every night,
to push that little button,
to keep me in the game.
but why?
what purpose?
what's to prove?
i like to write...
can't find my groove.

and then---
insomnia,
'til 4 a.m.
watching moments ticking by...
there's a full moon in the sky.
????? oh why?

every day i must write something,
but,
my head feels like a pumpkin.
empty vessels make most noise.
be quiet then,
put down the pen,
and ply the needle
busily
'til you can wheedle
something sane
from out your brain
to make it worth your while---

to write again.



There is a word for how I feel tonight.
I saw it here.

NahBloMe.

Went to investigate. Clicked. What a mistake! [but an interesting one!] That was about an hour ago, which means we're creeping up on midnight, again!

I'm going to bed now. No, really!
I have just one request....
Could someone please cover up the moon?

Sorry Molly, I have been neglecting some of my friends. I love the knitted hats. The placemats are great. ( good teacher )

I love it whatever you write or blog ( wordless )- cause your my good friend now . I want you to be able to sleep at night - I know what lying awake is like - it's no fun.( I only do it sometimes )

Hope you got some sleep. :) I did the NaBloPoMo a few years ago and found it utterly exhausting, too!

Yes, that old devil moon. Gives me the weirdest dreams. Up far too early with itching & restless legs.
I hope you get your sleep!
