Complicated

Complicated

This shouldn’t be so complicated,
after all of these years
it should be a snap.

Like the click of Dorothy’s
ruby red slippers.

Personally think they should
have been emerald green,
(she just wanted to go home).

So, here I sit, trying
to still my wandering mind,
slow down my heartbeat
so I can hear that quiet
voice of inspiration.

Maybe I should go out,
purchase some mint-green
stationery. Maybe
an emerald-green pen
with the same color ink.

Postpone the inevitable.
But that would make me
just another tired coward,
and I’d still have to write
this damned poem.

    Yes! Love this. I, too, struggled with the word. Should not have been complicated, but it was. Writing a poem can be tricky. Well done, Elizabeth.
