Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!


In response to Secretkeeper.net’s weekly writing prompt # 107, to use in a poem or flash fiction  the 5 words below.


Here is my attempt:



The thoughts are not at rest

 words fight with each other

against an emotional anguish

waging within the warring mind.


The vehement altercation goes on

refusing to follow any rules

lost in the mayhem

of strife and turmoil.


The fervid mind seeks to untangle

the impetuous mess within

picks up the pen to scribble

some magic on paper.


Verses flow gracefully

like the gentle river

calming down the torrents

poetry is truly therapeutic!

    Beautiful flow and strong emotions in your poem.
    Perhaps it is so, that writing is a therapy to ourselves. Yes, it is true….
    Well done
