L

Isn't it funny,
how words
won't come to me
until I have responsibilities
and deadlines.
I'll sit staring at blank pages
with not a care
or chore
in the world.
Writing nothing.
But then
when I have
work
and tasks
and things to do.
All I can think about
is committing
scribbling
out,
out,
out.

---

I opened the pages
without a thought
of the words
that might
fall out,
but it did feel right,
when my pen
hit the edge.
