What do you write about when you can't seem to make coherent sentences out of chaotic thoughts?

Where do you go when you have ideas, but they elude you with clever uses of punctuations and abbreviations as props

My mind is a jumble, jamble, mass of yarn tangled into spider webs by catnipped kittens

My thoughts bounce against my skull in an endless game of wallball and the reverberation has me squinting my eyes against the bright light of inner confessions.

For every step forward I'm thrown back three and I can't seem to find the Get Out of Jail Card for Free.

I dream of black sand beaches with turquoise skies and wake to find ordinary, plain me, no pretense, no disguise.

I laugh at my life and look through a humorous guise, if only so that I can delay crying till away from prying eyes

There are times when my whole life makes zero sense but I just keep plugging away because good girls do, just like mama said.

I whisper "I wish" into my pillow at night but it just lays there silent, blind, deaf, and dumb to my plight.

I want a little of my piece of the pie but found that they've left me only the crusts.

I know things get better and humor is a strong crutch but sometimes that crutch slips out and leaves me landing on my butt

I've dusted off my ass so many times it aught to shine, and all I can do on this silly thing here is rhyme.

So I'm back to the drawing board once again, going to spell out what I need with paper and pen.

Spilling my guts for autopsy and diagnosis

But knowing there's no cure for my particular psychosis

So please excuse my long absence from making much sense

It's 10:30 a.m. on a Friday and my paycheck's already been spent

I'm going back to my hovel, my desk, my office, and try my best not to talk to any of my boss's.

Your lovely self was driven to doing a lot of rhyming, KaraMia. What's up with that? I need to stop by more often, I like your page--or is it just your picture? In any case, I do need to visit more often.

Michele prompted this visit, KaraMia, but she won't be to blame for the next one!

Karamia, need a back-up singer? You write, I'll sing, just can't promise you any fancy dance moves.

So-wa-do-ya-say?

That would go great with a little snare and a trombone (think "Woman! Woooah-man!" from "So I Married an Axe Murderer")

I can't sing, so backup singer is out for me, but I can clap and dance. :) I hope it starts to make sense soon.

Gosh, you could be my real daughter, too.

Gotta hide the pain with humor, prose, and poetry. "Never let 'em see you sweat", right?

Brilliant and touching, dear heart.
