My Thread Languishes [FEB2014]

My Thread Languishes

My thread languishes
I wait by the screen
Blue light on my face
Click refresh obsessively
Then get up to pace
(Oh someone please put
Me out of my misery!)

One flag from a friend
I’m sure that I’ve bribed
“No more, no more!”
The dead thread cried

Alas and alack and woe is me
My heavens are dark
Nary a star to see

Would that my love for thee
Were not so strong
Oh site where I spend
All the day long

Would that I cared not
Who read or didn’t read
My poor abandoned words
My thread

Yes, pity the poor starless one
Who gnaws her nails
In funk and glum
All for one poor friend-purchased nod
I spent my day locked in a fog
Of word-smithing and smiting
Of carefully carved phrases
Of Valentine wishes
With pics of fresh flower vases

And languishing still
I wait, heck even a shill
Would be better than naught
A single soul in sight

Dear ATS
I beg thee be kind
And bid thee

(Except, oh no!
A new thread I must read!
Foiled again!
I boil water for coffee...)

I am really liking your writing, thanks for sharing.
I apologize for not seeing your earlier stuff till now (checked your profile).

Please don't stop, it's easy to read and flows very nicely.
I think a lot of people around here could identify with it as well.
I have a good memory so it won't languish as bad as you expect.

As I read through your thread,
And laughed it did Zing.
Your prose does run deep,
To you praises I sing.

Despair not good writer,
for fame shall be yours,
Some threads are bypassed,
Just like rock and roll tours.

Nicely done!
