Addicted Poem by Dee Daffodil


Rating: 5.0

Oh sure...
It started innocently enough

In the beginning
It was a verse here
A sonnet there
The occasional limerick
But before long...
She was hooked!

She was walking around
In a fog
Fragments of verse
Cluttering her mind
Threatening to steal
Her very soul

She was main-lining
Up to fifty
Poems a day

She had her regular dealers
That she would visit
And occasionally
She'd try something new
Sometimes, she would
Pedal her wares
She had to admit
It filled a void for something missing...
But what?

Then one day it came...
The 'intervention'
'Mom! ! You need to buy groceries! !
There's no food in the fridge! ! '
She realized
Then and there
That she had bottomed out...

The computer had to go! !

Dee, this was really great. That side swipe of humour really brought a smile to my face. I just loved it. From the comments you've received a lot of others did as well. Gave it my 10. Thanks for sharing it. David

Ahh this is great, a little humor for us poets, but there are those that really do have a problem, I for one, have those fragments of verse mulling around in my mind. Can't sleep at night, sometimes I drive people crazy always ending my sentences in rhyme. Oh my gosh, I need help, have to see a poem counseller. LOLOL. Love your poem Dee, fabulous.---Melvina---

As this will be comment number 33 on this poem I hardly think I can give any new insightful praise, so yes this is good, with a cherry on top.
