Fourth in a series of inverse poems

Ennui, both a blessing and curse

When nothing seems good and doing nothing worse

Bound and chained to bed, unable to leave,

Somehow both a prison and a reprieve

From the endless barrage of demands

Foisted upon us by society’s cruel hands

How long can the oblivion of inactivity last?

With future hopes left in the past

Another day’s ambitions gone astray

As apathy dulls simple joys to gray

Leaving mind and heart locked

The impenetrable wall of writer’s block
