Rock and a hard place without a dictionary.

This is the best
day for me in
years,as I pen
these few words,without
help from dictionaries,scholars,
teachers of verse,the
up and coming greats
of the literary world,
who I am quite
sure could enhance my
poetic prose and make
me a much more
cultured persona, but fortunately
I know known/none of
these good upstanding folks,
who I am again
sure are great contributors
to society as we
know it and deny
it, with their fancy
top hats, polished shoes,
mahognany waxed desk, adorned
with flickering oil lamps,
burning late into the
night,painting verse into
the deep blue of,
midnight smeared northern skies,
vaseline smeared teeth, which
I admire so,and
forget even faster,for
today is the best
day for me in
a very long time,
even though im stuck
between a rock and
a hard place without
a dictionary,for today
I am human again.

    To find a place called our own space, the place of which we find contented or distraught writing… subject to: experience, exposure, a moment of feeling, the new found whim, our studies, passions or life, this is when and where our happiness shall be found best- the moments we realize who we are and are happier for it. Keep rambling friend… I suffer the same… it is the extreme opposite of psychosis.

  • thank you Russell…i agree…we write because we write…much appreciated my friend…

    Great flow , its like you don’t even allow for breathing as one reads it: the spontaneous overflow is very enjoyable !! btw i hope you won’t consider me a prick but is line 14 the way its supposed to be or is there a slight error ?

  • thank you…much appreciated…i certainly would not consider you to be a prick…but i did write it without a dictionary…and i do know of the error but it was a play on words…you are very observant…damn word perfect…truth is you are right…lol…

    suspected as much – the word play, but just wanted to check, cos when I write in overflow I tend to make mistakes but then again word play isnt a mistake !!! thanks for being gracious !

  • thank you and thanks for reading and commenting…
