respite: for Miz Foofytayle

life is made of roadblocks with pot-holes in between
I muscle my way through it with the grace of a machine
and someday lord I swear it from the bottom of my heart
that I will take a crowbar and rip this world apart
and now you offer surcease be it only for a while
I would sing you hallelujahs but I’ve no strength to even smile
so many are the days I’ve had to wear this ball and chain
let me feast upon this respite ’til my life begins again

    An afternoon at Miz Floofytayle and everyone is refreshed! πŸ™‚ Especially when there is tea and cookies and some splortable kittehs to snorgle, while you rest….and recharge….

    I never saw that picture (I dont visit Miz Foffytayl that often) but your poem painted a picture of snorgeling kittehs and relaxing and hot tea so I had that picture in my head, but never saw the one on the blog! Which means your poem was better than you thought! πŸ˜€

    • Although the picture inspired me, my thoughts mainly centred around a sense of relief, rather than the details of how that relief is formulated.

        You were able to, without describing it, give me a mental picture of that same sense of relief and it was what inspired you even though the details weren’t that important. I thought that was quite interesting. I mean, I didn’t read your poem and think..” a quiet day at the beach reading and I would feel so much better”. The general picture, although I hadn’t seen it, popped in to my head!
