A Thought

I'm getting nowhere, and I'm getting there pretty damned fast.
Can you meet me there?

Don't know what we'll do.
Or who we'll see.
Some other failures.
Surely, Like me.

This nowhere place.
A phase in life?
A stage to act it all out on?
Will they serve coffee
for four bucks?

Will they have pen and paper.
And children?
And construction hearts and flowers.

I haven't a clue.
Do you?

This nowhere place.
Is it up or down?
Can you read Dr. Seuss there?
Or Sandra Boynton?

Or even maybe.
This nowhere place
Has
Cool comfy couches
soft chenile blankies
Pillows to soothe tired heads.

Why am I tired?
Will this nowhere place have
at least
a speck of sunshine,
a sliver of light
to let me breathe again.

Because this gloom
and doom
and drear is suffocation
at its best.

(and, I have no idea what I just wrote, I am not going back to read it. I am going upstairs to my woobie, and my cool pillows and my warm hubby and I'm going to sleep. So goodnight. And yes, I am pulling a James Frey because I am going to go back to read it. But, I will not change a thing. No matter what I said just now)

Hey, I just thought of a good joke I made up:

What's the internet and a man in need of Viagra have in common?

You can never get off!

Buh-dum-bump!

*knocks loudly* Uh, am I interrupting? (hehehe)

I should be sleeping, but guess what? I'm reading your lovely poem and pointing out that line #7 is so not true.

Hang in there...spring is almost here. :)

Manic Mom said...

Hey Jess, nah, it was past J's bedtime so I tucked him in... haha.

Line seven or six? I can't count, remember, I am a *writer* hahah, again.

I'm delirious from lack of sleep. Speaking of sleep, did you get my email about sharing the hotel room? My oh my, this should get the comments ROLLIN'! : )

Can I come with you to this nowhere place? I'm going anyway... and I'd hate to go alone.

Jessica said...

If you have more sexy with your Hubby, all these questions will be answered:-) Fellatio is especially enlightening ;-)

great poem. it totally captured how i'm feeling lately. I'm headed there, and I really hope they have $4 coffees, too. Except in that nowhere place they would be free.

Wait a second, starting tomorrow they WILL be free for me! I start a p/t job at STARBUCKS tomorrow! :)

I'm seriously feelin ya on the sentiment of that poem, though. Hang in there.

Manic Mom said...

Tommy--the point is to MAKE ME HAPPY, not the hubby! haha.

Mo--Go Starbucks Girl go! I craved one today so I went to get my tallnonfatsugarfreevanillalatteextrahot today, and I was all excited to drink it, and lo and behold, it just did not taste right. Bummed me out totally, so Ajers drank it. Hate when that happens. Good luck tomorrow! : )

Manic Mom - I would like to e-mail you but I didn't see your address listed. I didn't want to post - but I don't have another option. Did you read that silly Stephanie Klein is pregnant?

Manic Mom said...

Anon--NO WAY! I can't wait to hear about this.

Manic Mom said...
