Listening to music whilst writing can have it's drawbacks lol

‘Interruptus Motorhead’


Ah! the tunes are soothing…

Pleasing orchestral ambience in which to compose

verse of profound love…

So relaxed am I, I slip easily into metaphor, in fact I

may even include a dove.


Where are you?

The one candle left to burn before

eternal darkness comes


Oh yes! I can see where this is going

with all this beautiful music flowing.


Where are you?

Elusive flame that ignites hope

in fractured hearts


This melodious magic

is so soothing my pen is dancing on the

edge of tragic


Where are you?

Light of desire who flickers like

an elusive dream


“Turn the bass up” roared Lemmy


a cacophony of molten metal wrought

from thunderous virtue…interrupts


Where are you?

Tear me open and look for

what’s lost inside


a train of thought buggered

a poem shattered, words and thoughts hide

from a music less sugared.


Thanks to Motorhead, I forgot what it was I wanted to say

but I think it was along the lines of…


like a candle I watch

you melt away


so thanks to Motorhead it’s not a poem and it’s not prose

I may as well sit here and pick my nose.

Thanks so much Paul xoox

An extraordinary journey through the life of a powerful creative moment brutalized by the less sensitive among us. These are finely nuanced lines that capture the very essence and delicate passion of the creative impulse. Beauty greets the beast with a forgiving heart and a gentle sense of humor:-)

Paul, you must be a riot in real life if you can come off this funny and natural on a page.
Reviewed by L. Figgins
You disguise those achingly beautiful lines of longing in between verses about Motorhead. The juxtaposition makes them even more poignant. I laughed nevertheless. I'm glad that we can laugh through the pain...xox

Hee, hee, glad I'm not the only nose picker..
Music is ok, but it can get me off track..
Love the humor....

i loved this...absolutely loved it...i was getting a bit tired of romantic and this just grabbed me and said 'how about this'
Reviewed by Sherry Heim
LOL, Paul...I hate it when my inspiration leaves before the poem is finished. I call it "clarity that fades to indifference." You have written the moment well.
Take care,

LOL... Where are you? You can't hide from the finger...

Well both actions get results Paul, nose picking and prose writing. Except I think that the later produces a more permenent result, even if the first is a needed temporary fix. But either way something inside.....comes out....and when we got the blues.....
they need an outlet...
Enjoyed this tons!

LOL thank you for the unexpected smile, I am delighted.......pax Anita

Be sure to use your pinky finger, it gets further in to the thicker boogers...they have more taste and more meat...Ed

LOL!!!I always write with music, but I turn it off if it doesn't suit the mood of the poem;-) This is a fantastic write so be thankful to Motorhead, and please no picking your nose;-)!Love the humor!

Nah... I just laughed myself soxless at this, Paul... this has got to be Brithumour!! Ah yes!! The poetic sublime torpedoed by some heavy metal, or, in my case, belting Matchbox 20 (bit more intelligent and refined, but STILL belting at times!! - don't hit me!!) Bet you play pretty mean air-guitar, huh?! Yeah, let's forget all this poetry lark and just meet up for a bit of thrash... :)) LOL Kate aka Kuatro (Susie)(showing me age...) LOL Kate xx

Lol...I found I MUST have silence to write...otherwise who knows what would come out...although some may think it's better than my usual

Dear Paul,
Even when motorhead interrupts your thoughts, you produce art. This is abstract but it is powerful nevertheless. The words 'like a candle, I watch you melt away' went deep. I find them achingly sad. In my heart I'd like to believe that nobody you love ever truly fades away but remains within, an everlasting light.
I wish I could contribute something more meaningful but for once I am at a loss for words...
Love Chanti
