287. Book 

About how I’ve felt writing my book.. 

This was fun, I think, before.. 


But now I’m being flung,

From moving car into a train, 

A train that’s made of cheese. 

But I love Brie, so that’s no blow, 

Ok I’m in my conscious flow, 

The words are really sliding out, 

I love this process, I’m so proud, 

My fingers tapping keys with force, 

My fingers feel so… Weak? 

Like sausages, Splat, meaty splat, 

I can’t explain, but this is crap, 

I’ll never ever write this shit,

Nobody will want to read it, 

I’ve wasted so much time. 

But, wait!!! A clever play on words,

That’s good, I think, my mood it hurls,

Upwards, I sip coffee pleased,

I’m sitting on a masterpiece,

A joy, an epic tour de force, 

A fucking gem, pardon my coarse,

But honest voice, 

I sigh, I’m lost.

      Haha I certainly hope so. I’m hoping my rather kooky personality will transfer well to word because I’m desperate to help people who found themselves in the suicidal place I was in. Eli

      It really is haha. One moment you are the worlds greatest wordsmith and the next your words are drivel.

      It’s quite the adventure.
