Nikki

12:00

I wake up in the morning, 

no wait - midday,

its storming. 

This isn't right.

I should be flying a kite,

out in the bright early light. 

Not up on a screen late at night.

Drowned in music.

Why?

because I like music?

No.. It keeps me from thinking.

works better than drinking. 

saves me from sinking.

So as of now im not dead.

yet.

    Welcome to MPS, Nikki.
    Nice rhyme. What keeps you from 'sinking' is writing, and you are doing that quite well!

    Welcome NIKKI ~ Thanks for your firs Poem ~ which in the UK we call a "Nonsense Poem" which are always fun to read and puzzling to understand !
