I feel as though I am being run ragged between school and work. I forgot my sister's birthday, ugh. Anyway, here is a poem. Enjoy.

I just felt like swimming

it has been difficult to write lately
I keep drawing a blank
every time I sit down
nothing comes to mind
so I will write about not being able to write
it is better than nothing I guess
I feel drained
mentally and physically
I feel as though I could lay
my head down on my desk
and immediately fall asleep
a modern day Rip Van Winkle
my mind keeps wandering
it is difficult to concentrate
I need to get up
move around
take a walk outside the building
stretch my legs
maybe skip around the office building
because coffee isn’t doing the trick
daydreams about white sandy beaches
and beautiful blue ocean waters
are not working
I think part of it has to do
with feeling stuck
I’m stuck here
landlocked
a prisoner
or something pretty damn
close to it
I want to take off running
like Forest Gump
“I just felt like running.”
but instead of turning around
when I reach the ocean
I’m going to jump in
and start swimming
“I just felt like swimming”
