Inadequate

Under pressure to make the perfect poem

Searching desperately for the right words

Erase and rewrite

Start all over again

I have a limited amount of time so I struggle through

While facing my own dilemma head on

Erase and rewrite

Start all over again

I start to get tired and sleep tugs at me

My mind grows more foggy

Erase and rewrite

Start all over again

I surrender to my inadequacy

And just give in to my writer’s block

Word after word

End this pressure now

 

 

Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challange (FOWC) – pressure

Under Pressure

The atmospheric pressure

Was finally high today

Which brought the sun out

And left the pain at bay

The rain and clouds

Had really brought me down

The last few days

I’ve been wearing a frown

But the change in weather

Might be just what I need

To turn my mood around

And leave my happiness freed

So the next time the clouds come

And I start to feel blue

I will just wait patiently

For the next sunny day anew
