I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
"Time Out" is a poem about how she is having one of those days. She doesn't want to climb out of bed to start her day. She goes through the motions and gets dressed, but sits on the sofa becoming immersed in a football game on televison. She takes a timeout.
"You Deserve A Break ~ Watch This." by Rebekah Mack
She is having one of those days,
where she struggles
to get anything accomplished.
From the moment her eyes peer open,
she wishes to stay in bed
hiding beneath the covers.
In slow motion, she trudges
her feet along the cold bare floor
toward a tiny kitchen
where vittles await her arrival.
Then it’s off to the steam room
to blast her skin with the high powered sprayer
making her beauty come back to life
leaving “Frankie - the sister of Frankenstein" behind her.
she dresses in layers
to suit the unseasonably cool weather,
but hesitation fills her soul.
She plops down on a comfy sofa
as her blue eyes become immersed
with the game on the screen,
watching as players toss a football
across a snow covered field,
she takes a timeout.
take it all one day at a time
and enjoy the journey.
