...Iambic pentameter is for the ear. Read it out loud.

Bio
While the ashes of marriage #2 were cooling, I began a journal here in verse, to keep myself out of trouble. So far so good, and one day at a time. I took a hiatus this past January, and I missed it terribly. Writing daily had changed the way I think - not my opinions, but the process of thinking itself. So here I am back again, and hungry. I began with three rules: (1) Iambic pentameter, (2) Perfect rhyme, and (3) It had to be true (no hyperbole). I hereby amend rule number 3: If I'm writing about myself, yes, it has to be true. But it doesn't, if I want to tell a story.

Agreement #2. Wednesday September 1, 2010

Rate: 5 Flag

I can't.  The kids have left, their mother's here.
I haven't gotten used to having nights
Like this.  We've done it many times this year,
According to the papers, where the rights
To certain times, events and holidays
Are holy writ, all signed and notarized.
But still, I live for Her extended stays
At Somewhere Else.  I shouldn't be surprised
That times like this, there nothing much to write.
Or do, or feel.  I'm calling it a night.

I'm sorry.
I hope tomorrow seems better.
I can't imagine how hard... you tell it well. Sleep and now they will be home soon to make you feel whole.r
So much sadness. I hope tomorrow is better.
Holy Writ. Thinking of you and hoping that, at least, the night allowed you rest.
i can tell this is hard. i feel awkward with this inability to find the right words, or any word that could serve as company or balm.

hope today and tonight is better.
Good evening everyone. Thank you for letting me rant.

vanessa, today was better indeed. And last night wouldn't have been so bad, had I not been so tired. Thank you.

hugs, thanks. And I did sleep, very soon after.

ladyslipper, thank you. It was better, and thank you for your wish.

Canuck, thank you. And yes, it was restorative, and I went running this morning.

anna1, thank you. And I did get my rest, and boy did I need it.

Renatta, thanks for your wishes. You don't need to find words. That's what you do on YOUR blog. Your brief message is very much appreciated.
