Gone missing once again from the safety of the written word
Ripped away from the comfort of the blanket of others creativity
Time will only tell how long I will struggle through the dark night
Without these moments of satisfaction provided by artistic light
It seems the harsh realities of this monotonous daily existence
Have stolen me away from the protection on my beloved words
Tick tock, tick tock, as the clock on the wall so torturously taunts
I have no time to seek shelter in the shadows of my favorite haunts
I shall return to roam the jungle I rule over with strength and pride
Once the dust has settled and the air is again safe to deeply inhale
Bringing the familiar swagger of an artistic view back to the pages
Hopefully showing signs of my influences from fools and from sages
Great to see you back J! It’s been to long. 🙂
That was an intro to more greatness from you. Hope you’re well J’. Welcome back
Thanks Ax. I hope to be back more consistently now.
There was a noticeable space. Now get your ass 😉 in gear and roar!!

Even ‘missing in action’ you’re not, this is a great piece John…
Thanks Jewels. It feels good to write again and I hope to be back much more often. I so appreciate your time and unique talents as well.
Hi John! I know the feeling so well… So nice to see you. Blessings to you… Holly
Hi Holly. It does my heart good to know that after too long an absence my favorite WP friends and amazing writers such as yourself are still present and accounted for regarding my heartfelt words. Blessings to you as well. I have missed you.
You’re most welcome, John, and thank you for the compliment. 🙂
Hi you! I popped on WP today after a long 3 months and saw your post. Great to read your wonderful words, as always! Hope you are doing well ….love and hugs 🙂
So cool to see you. Timely of you to pop up for this post. I have been torn away from WP a bit and have been fighting to get back into my writing groove. I am so glad to see you back. Drop in any time.
