Positive To Negative

 

I’m positively positive and negatively not,

the next line I’ve forgotten, this happens quite a lot.

 

It jumps about inside my head giving a big shout

but starts to get distorted when I come to write it out.

 

The words I want are oh so clear deep inside my brain

but trying to get hold of them’s like trying to drink rain;

 

a little drip, a little drop – the effort is too great,

but to give up on an idea is something that I hate.

 

Yes’, I say, ‘it’s still there, waiting for me to write’;

No’, I say, still struggling but tiring of the fight.

 

Don’t give up’, I tell myself, ‘you are going to win.’

Concede defeat, why don’t you ‘cause your brain is like a pin.’

 

So off I’ll go and start to work on another task

and then you know what happens – you don’t need to ask.

 

As soon as I get started, those words get clear and strong --

I’ll grab a piece of paper and write before they’re gone!
