Boredom Blues

Boredom Blues

A Poem by Ramya
"

There was this day at work when I did not have anything to work on and I felt totally, utterly sleepy.....this poem is an extension of that boredom, an expression of what I went through.

"
When nothing works in my mind,
And all thoughts come to a screeching halt,
I sit totally blank; a clean chalkboard.
Restless, impatient,
Disconnected from the mundane,
It is hard to fathom this gap, unseen.
My mind ain’t a devil’s workshop, no!
It is but a thoughtless existence,
When absolute boredom seeps through.
I slide down my never-ending chair,
Eyes half-droopy and ridiculously insane,
I crawl helplessly on the floor,
Akin a sloth that has gone askew!
Pillows, I hit them;
Fluffy and white,
Clouds of soft sensations,
Dreamy delights!

Just being there,
In that cottony comfort
Is what I love the most.
I do not care, I do not need
Bliss anymore.

I wish we can fill chalkboards with love,

love the simple humbleness of the work, the words and the points of pause and effect.

There have been those days for me as well, where I had to get up, go outside, and take a walk to get my juices flowing again. The worst thing in the world is for your boss to walk up on you when you are passed out snoring. lol.
