Exhaustion comes to mind
when I lay my body down to rest
words invade my head from one challenge
to the next
I wonder why I do it
push my mind to the extreme
it’s not for comments, likes or such
it just comes from my within
I exhaust all possibilities
gathering my thoughts
I cannot stop this madness
to put my entry onto sites
I revel in the madness
and I push myself it’s true
so forgive me when I write
it’s what I have to do
you must know by now it’s who I am
I shall exhaust myself
for the love of writing
I can I will I can
Feel pretty much the same way. Nicely done, unusual take.
Oh Sandra thank you! I am glad I am not the only one who experiences this 🙂 Appreciate your feed-back and visit.
I find myself doing that a lot! Very good!
Thanks Bo – we are all hopeless cases it seems 🙂
This rings true for many of us, I suspect.
Yes I concur – I am totally obsessed with writing …alas I must now try to sleep! Thanks Trifecta for the challenge 🙂
That urge…I know I definitely feel it all the time (:
So many of us are feeling this way Druag…whatever are we to do?? 😉

I thought I had replied to you, apologies something went askew. Thanks for popping over and your kind comment 🙂
Excellent take on the challenge 😀
Mwaahhhh 😉 chookas
Oh mumsy! I felt tired for you! Hugs xxxx
lol it’s ok each day a new one…each day more possibilities 🙂 xx
Pep talk? Apology? Justification? lol PREACH! You’ll find you have a large choir.
I am grateful and appreciative of what you have written – thank you! x
There is a little madness to it, isn’t there? Fun, though!
Delirious more likely 🙂 Yes thoroughly enjoyable at the same time! Thanks for popping in and commenting Annabelle. 🙂
I enjoyed the way you responded to this challenge – and it’s always great to get a glimpse into the process of a finished piece. We are grateful for your efforts – please don’t ever stop the madness!!
Thank you Gabs I shall try not to, I will write no matter who reads, because it is something I am born to do, something that I cannot live without. Thank you for appreciating, it is very gratifying coming from a writer such as yourself to write such kind words. xx
How well you have captured what most writers feel-or when a passion for something does not allow you to relax till its attended to.Wonderful take on the prompt-love it:-)
I know 61 thank heaven for the ‘notes’ on my phone, many a night after I go to bed after writing my posts, my head is tucked under the doona cover and I write what springs into my head… hence the insomnia! Appreciate what you have written – thank you! xx
Oh,you mean,you write under covers?;-)That reminds me of my youth when I used to keep a pencil 7 pad under my pillow & whenever a couplet jumped to my mind-which used to happen regularly at around 2-3 a.m(love does that I think,lol!),I would scribble it on ,in the dark(no way my parents would allow me to keep the lights on at that hour-small house-no separate bedroom too:-)Now,am my own Boss-am up till the wee hours of dawn-so no problems-now only if ideas flowed that easily too-sigh!Enjoyed reading what you wrote & the best [part of Trifecta is being able to comment-talk & get to know a bit of each other-love doing it:-)
Aren’t you just the sweetest thing! Yes I am guilty of spilling what’s inside my head under the covers. I am so glad you have no ‘restrictions’ now – this is amazing all this different sites that give us the opportunity to share what we write. Thank you sweet-heart…but do try to get SOME sleep 😉 xx
Thank you for lighting up my day:-)Yes,it is definitely amazing & I love it.Oh,I do sleep but in the day-get up at noon,lol!
I can relate to this. I write the challenges and read as much as I can because it just feels empty not to 🙂
I am right with you Janat, we seem to have many who feels the same way, as tiring as our minds become, we cannot stop. I am so glad I joined WP to give me the ability to write as I do. Thank you, xx
You’ve really expressed the mental process very well. It’s always a struggle to come up with something new, but I love writing and I love the challenge. Nice entry.
I thank you LD, that’s why I enjoy being challenged so much and so many great sites to get ‘absorbed in’.
