Not in the mood today (a poem)

I skipped yesterday, as it turned out. I don’t much feel like writing today, either—but I don’t want to get out of the habit, so I gave it a shot anyway…

I’m not in the mood for writing

I’m not in a space where my thoughts have something to say

I’m not in a frame of mind to open that part of myself

I’m not inclined to step outside of that part of my shell

I’m not going to pretend otherwise

I’m not going to run away

I’m not going to write any more today
