100 Word Challenge: Thinking Out Loud

This is my response to Velvet Verbosity's 100 Word Challenge:  Thinking.

Thinking Out Loud

If ever I go missing,
I won’t be out of town.
I won’t be in the office, the kitchen, or
Wandering about in my nightgown.

I won’t up be to my ears in paperwork
Or my elbows in flour or dishsoap.
I won’t be battling calories or crowds,
Or the feeling there’s just no hope.

I won’t be in a hurry,
A tizzy or a snit.
I won’t be out of my head, or
Out of energy and ready to quit.

I won’t be off my rocker, or
In a fit of pique.
If ever I go missing,
I’ll be in Martinique.


Thoughts? I would love to hear from you.
