Cast It Aside

Isn't this like the fourth Poetry Peak in a row? That's like amazing. I think my record is two, maybe three. This shows that I am improving which is wonderful. I can't wait to see how I improve in my poem writing in NaPoWriMo. I wonder if I should lay out a theme for the month or make a list of things to write about. Or maybe I should just go with the flow. That's what I do normally. Like with this week's poem.

Cast it Aside

I will

become wei
(or nearly so)

My feet
will lift off the
through my own

Beauty will
         from where
there was a he
of distasteful
s     lo    p
wi      ngs
as I shed
my old ugly

and cast
it                aside

Strangely enough, this poem was inspired by The Biggest Loser. It's about losing weight and feeling carefree, so much so that you could fly. I love the way I set it up. I always love it when I make them look all kooky and crazy. I love when I come up with my own form as well, but in a different way. I'm thinking I might make this into a video, a slideshow of sorts. I just have to figure out how.

I've also been working on, or trying to, this week's short story. I have an idea but the words don't seem to be coming right. They come easy but they don't sound right. Maybe I should just get it all written and then worry about that. I'm hoping to finish it by tomorrow so I can post. Maybe I'll make Friday my 'post the short story for the week' day (I'll have to think of a better name than that though). But first, just to give myself some more time to gather my thoughts, I'm going to edit my chapter for the day and make some huge headway in Wuthering Heights. I'm only halfway through it and I still want to read The Replacement before Saturday so I can post a review. I shall be busy tonight. Good thing I have about five hours.


  1. I love how you formatted this poem; I like your inspiration too. It's so random but funny.

  2. I know right? I was just thinking that I needed to write a poem that week and I had just watched The Biggest Loser. I guess that's what I get. XD
