Glass of red in hand
feel the float
and think thoughts
of past
wonder where
I am
life passing
come on!
come on!
just need to make
but oh
the procrastination!

Commentally Ill
ooh, red wine (yum). as to the theme of this (and your powerful last line) i can only say:

i'll finish this comment later.

c.i. :)

I sometimes think that procrastination also has a purpose. Many times my mind rebels when I use those words 'must' or 'should.' It says 'why must you or why should you?' Usually, I have to modify the way I'm approaching some of these musts and shoulds and then my mind says: 'OK, do it.' And occasionally, I realize that I have no intention of doing these things and I'd just as well stop obsessing over it.

Great poem.

Somehow that crystal with the rosy glow does often lead to procrastination - have been there many a time - definitely a poem I think most could relate to, especially of a certain age :-)
