Boredom

Boredom

A Poem by emipoemi

It slows the time,

It weighs us down;

It forms a void

In which we drown.

 

It blocks the mind,

Disrupts its flow,

And traps inside

All that we know.

 

Thus we begin

Forgetting all

Regardless of

How great or small.

For by and by

A bitter blight

Without respite

Grows on the sly

Along our mind’s neat shelves.

And soon we start

To fall apart,

And lose our wills,

Our glows, our skills,

Our reveries,

Our memories,

Our eloquence,

Intelligence,

And last we lose ourselves.

Very good rhyming and pacing in this one. Also good insight into the psychological effects of boredom. The first verse is one of the most acute and succinct descriptions of tedium I have seen. Very good work.
