Can This Be Classed An Affliction ?


Always creating I can't seem to stop

Mind going round and around

Neurons zip-zapping, doing their bit

Looking for what can be found


Feeding on sensings which come to the brain

Aural and visual firings

Helped by the body's fine sensory touch

Connected by vast neural wirings


Looking and looking, the neurons don't stop

Searching food for my addiction

Turning it into this rhythm and rhyme

Can this be classed an affliction?

I'm with Devon on this one. But good to see it in print.

Response from an outsider:

Affliction? Addiction?
Creative? Curse?
Distraction? Reaction?
Nothing worse

So don’t stop....

If by popping out rhymes
can be classed an affliction
then you my friend
have that addiction

But would you wish
a cure for your diction
if so you should maybe
try to write fiction
