Introspection Opus

Yes its another poem and it’s a long one this time. It’s almost a stream of consciousness (but of course it still rhymes, sorry again) and follows a line of thinking I got caught on for an epic fifty  stanzas. I’ll totally understand if you don’t read it all.  I’ve split it into pages, it’s that long and it’s the first of these new posts that has a “Read more…” link. So what are you waiting for?

Introspection Opus

I am cursed with over thinking.
Faith in the rational mind.
Trapped in a cage of contemplation.
Emotion kept contained.

How did I end up in this state,
And can I make it back?
Can I break these mental chains,
And regain what I now lack?

Why am I trapped by reason?
Left in this cage to rot.
I can see potential causes.
But solutions I have not.

I feel I can’t reveal this.
That’s the issue at it’s core.
Theres no help from outside myself.
And self help helps no-more.

I’ve identified the causes
Or at least what they could be.
Whether they can be reversed
We’ll have to wait and see.

  2. First of all I would like to say excellent blog!

    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?

    I don’t do anything special to center myself before writing. If I have the inclination to write, I do. I carry a moleskin and pen around with me pretty much everywhere and jot down ideas when they occur to me, and if one particular idea grabs my attention and prompts further development then I do that until I get bored with it.

    It’s not much help I know, but explaining how I write is actually quite difficult. My brains spits stuff out, I write it down, from my point of view it really is that simple. 😀
