static

A Chapter by Ana Papaya
"

.

"
deathly pale
       beneath a buzzing veil   
she is lost 
following a thought she is unable to catch
    the rhythmic hum pulls her further off track         
trapped ~ how will she ever get back

Ooh, can relate to this both as a writer whose mind seems to set itself on a never stilling roulette wheel and as a person who can sometimes find themselves out of their depth of living a life unintended, most likely for the sake of others that think they know what is best for you.
Hmm, you so much better than I not to sound as cynical 😀

.... I read this and got an electric shock from my keyboard just as I was about to start typing my response .. so I had a cup of tea ... when I had finished my tea and returned I could not remember my original intended witty remark .... then it occurred to me that either these words are more electric than I imagined .. or I'm doomed to remain sitting in front of an empty screen ... maybe for ever .. now that is what I call static ...

oh my goodness ... you wrote this for me Ana! .. with every sleep there comes that place between waking .. where thought are only caught at a glimpse ... seemingly so important ... but wakefulness draws them further and further into the nether perhaps ;) love this poem ..very realtable for me ma'am!

a writer who can't catch an elusive thought...or a bride trapped in a wedding she does not want...
arranged marriage in comparison to arranged words on a page that we must vow to make into a poem.
oh yes...this one sent me places.
