Muddy Water

Take me out of this skin!
Don’t put it back.
I don’t want it.
Don’t make me have it.
Okay.
If you insist.
Then I’ll just sit
in this muddy water
and let it slide into my soul
through yet another
crack.

I am a writer plagued by lack of focus, procrastination, distraction, and sleep exhaustion. I have many things going against me, but that doesn't prevent me from starting back up and trying again. I am a wife and a mother. I own two cats. I have a full-time day job (which I love on some days and dread on others). I look really boring from the outside, but inside, my mind is like a carousel. Or a circus. Or a plane of hell, depending on the day.
