|"Spilled Coffee" from WordPress|
Nearing the edge of the page
My ink quill threatens to flee
My mind cringes at the sight
My hair stands upside down.
Do I dare to write the final word?
Is it really something worth sharing?
Perhaps a mug of coffee will tell,
Or perhaps it may not.
A drip of caffeine falls from my lip
Splattering on the page in slow motion
My heart beats faster and faster
Not my masterpiece! Not now!
I shouldn't have taken any chances
I should have written that last word
Now time will never know what it was
Now there is a dried up stain on the page.
Nearing the edge of sanity now
The ink blotches the page now
It's skewed into a magnificent oblivion
Now, I need time to think.
Why didn't I write that final word?
Is it really up to destiny to determine?
Perhaps there is enlightenment to all of this,
Or perhaps there was not.
