I'm Bored

A Poem

boredom.

i'm bored.

i ignored how bored

my boredom makes me.

it kills thrills

and squishes wishes

of un-scored roars

screeching

and breeching

costly

sanity.

what's sanity?

untold vanity?

taking selfies to pass the time.

i'm out of my mind, working

past my primetime,

and casting shadows upon my bellows

of 'I CANNOT WORK LIKE THIS'

and 'DO I EVEN HAVE A LEG

TO STAND ON OR DO I HAVE TO BEG?'

sometimes work is the hardest

kind of play, and play is harder

to find than work.

This poem is from my self-published poetry Beauty

Disease, and can be found on Etsy and Apple Books.
