I need centring
I need control
I’m just avoiding
All I must do
I love distraction
Soothes my soul
Makes me forget I
Must follow through

I’m writing poems
When yet instead
I should be drafting
Something more
All that’s creative
Fills my head
All that’s work is
Just a bore

I should be focussed
I should produce
I should not linger
At these keys
I love distraction
It has such use
Makes me cling to
Just what I please

About Helen

I'm drawn to blogging as a way to share ideas and consider what makes us who we are. Whether it's in our working life or our creativity, expression is a means to connect.

  3. Can’t keep all that creativity you have bottled up, love. No wonder you’re itching to write. 🙂

  4. Ah, distraction! Our undoing.
