Too Many Bits / A Thursday Kind of Snippet

Too Many Bits / A Thursday Kind of Snippet ~

I tried to fit all my broken pieces in one basket but it was too heavy
and the splinters kept dropping through
and I was losing too much time and too many bits.
I retraced my steps over and over picking up the ones I thought were mine
but when I tried matching the edges they weren’t a fit,
and now I am not sure whose pieces I have been carrying.
And there are cuts on my hands,
and dust like drying salt,
and shredded bit of yellow sticky notes where I tried to keep them orderly…
But I can’t even remember why I was collecting them,
in the first place….

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
