Wanted to do a lot of things
Ended up doing a few
Because the mood was such
I didn’t want to move

Ended up doing few
Tasks that begged for attention
Didn’t want to move anymore
Just didn’t feel like it

The body and mind didn’t feel like it
Blissful ignorance of
The tasks begging for attention
 As an emotion took over 

The emotion took over
As hands and legs refused to move
The body and mind went along and ignored 
Everything else

Hands and legs refused
To do a lot of things
So everything else stayed as it was
The mood was such

Note: With this poem in the emotive poetry series, I have experimented with the Pantoum form to define the associated emotion.


I’m participating in #BlogchatterA2Z and this post is the twelfth one corresponding to the alphabet ‘L’. Know more about the challenge and my theme here. See you tomorrow with the next alphabet and a poem around another human emotion.

Thank you for reading.

  1. This appears to be a simple poem, Manali, but you have crafted it so well. And yes, we do have our lazy days when nothing seems to work because we don’t feel like it. Enjoyed reading this!
