Inspiration Issues

Hey, all. I need to warn you guys that I'm writing this post while operating on little sleep. I have no proper excuse, just that Pride and Prejudice is way more interesting than I ever thought it would be.  I'm a slightly slap happy right now, having just spent the last 5 hours being quiet at church, so it may see like I'm rambling today.

As you may have guessed, my life is pretty uneventful, so I'm having difficulties getting inspired on any topics at the moment. So, in order to actually write any decent poetry I've been trying to base my work off of different books I've read and/or shows I watch. i know, kinda lame, but I'm not just writing about the show. I try to put myself into the character's place. My poem's are about how i would feel if I were in that person's place, and going through all the crap they are going through.  it may seem unorthodox, but I'll only use this technique when I've got nothing else to base a poem off of.

This week has been one of those weeks in which there hasn't been anything eventful to inspire my poems. so I used the method i mentioned above.  I based my poem off of the anime Tokyo Ghoul.  It's about a college student named Kaneki, who is bitten and starts to turn into a ghoul. The show is about him trying to resist his ghoul side; trying to hang on to his humanity and to not eat people. As such, this poem is kinda dark, but when I wrote it I was full of feeling.  It is a free verse poem, like most of my other pieces.  I call it Struggle after the speaker's internal battle. It's kinda long, so I'm not going to post any of the poem. The next updated will be in about two weeks, after my midwinter break from school.

Thanks,
Lizzie

P.S. Happy Valentine's Day
