    Fuffy pillows

    I crawled from my bed

    Unaware of time.

    No concern of mine.

    Fluffy pillows left behind.

    I clutched my drink from the night stand.

    My only thought,

    It's still full, I think I'll take a pill.

    Instead, I walk out of my comfy confines

    Through the rooms I float.

    Loving hand long since gone.

    I approach my throne.

    I sit and pour a cup of lukewarm coffee left behind.

    Maybe this will help, I query in my mind.

    I guess time tics by me silently and slowly.

    I pick up a book, a flicker of thought, then away the thought flees.

    All thoughts fade.

    I sit and rock.

    Dead eyes ahead, still with empty head.

    I find myself once again in my bed.

    Fluffy pillows beneath my head.

    One way to improve ones' poetry is to exspand ones' vocabulary. Understanding their meanings and how to use them and spelling is important for sure. Wish this site had a spell check. Helps so we don't have to cont. go and edit them. You think you have all the flaws covered, and wammo! There is another blooper! LOL

    I am attempting to combine writing verse using healing techniques with the framework of the poetry. My first attempt is found in my poem The Here and Now. I would be most grateful for any views. Greetings from Fay Slimm.

    I keep to myself under the heavy drone of vacationers.
    But don't think for a moment -
    I cease to sing.

    Hey I'm new on this, I'd be glad if some of you have some time to rate or comment my poems, and constructive criticism serves me well too.
    Whoever writes, I naturally check their stuff as well.

    hi, how do you deal with the inner struggles of a poet in deciding about the inclusion of that one last line which changes the whole shade or meaning of the poem? archana
