My life is comprised of inconsistencies, daydreaming, procrastination techniques and occasionally, writing.

Altered it a little bit, not too sure if it works or not. I don't write poetry very often and any commentary would be much appreciated!

The Test Paper

July 28, 2015

PROMPT: Open Prompt


The tap of pen against desk
The constant parting of lips
As my breath meets the air
The beating of heart in chest
As the clock hand moves
And the test paper’s bare.
Sums and numbers
Glare from blank pages
What they mean, I cannot tell
Should have studied, I think
I open my mouth and let my chest swell,
To release a sigh that's deep and
Filled with regret
Pen touches paper
I consider
I have half an hour yet.
