OctPoWriMo Day 10: Panic to Mania

OctPoWriMo Day 10: Panic to Mania

I’m participating in OctPoWriMo (October: Poetry Writing Month), though I’ve missed seven days so far. . .

Today I’m using the prompt from Day 8, Moments of Madness, and the suggested form, the Blitz Poem, which is new to me, and challenged me out of my comfort zone, and maybe caused a little bit of panic. . . but it’s good to try new things, right?


Panic to Mania

Deadline pressure3c9aa-panic2bgif
Deadline panic
Panic drives activity
Panic spawns frenzy
Frenzy wears me out
Frenzy makes me crazy
Crazy eyes
Crazy hair
Hair turns gray
Hair pulled out
Out of sight
Out of mind
Mind is terrible
Mind is waste
Waste land
Waste water
Water the lawn
Water the flowers
Flowers powers
Flowers on my grave
Grave consequences
Grave stone
Stone drunk
Stone cold
Cold soup
Cold as ice
Ice cream
Ice coffee
Coffee grounds
Coffee rush
Rush hour
Rush to finish
Finish working
Finishing touches
Touches of grace
Touches my heart
Heart ache
Heart burn
Burn books
Burn bridges
Bridges of Madison CountyOctPoWriMo
Bridges too far
Far away
Far far away
Away from here
Away from Mania
Mania ending
Mania inevitable
