I Need an Idea -Hour 22

I need an idea

to reach out and grab me

Shake me awake

Pull me out of dreamland

Bring me back to the almost alive

An idea to pull me back from the precipice

I need an idea

Something to fly with, drive with

Or at the very least cry with

An idea I can sink my teeth into

Throw in some words,

some sentence structure,

and mix them all up.

Just one small idea

Something, anything at all.

Toss me a word, a generality

A token or a snippet maybe

Just not the word “tenderness”

That won’t do it

I need something less soft and

more word worthy.
