Another Rejection

Another rejection!

Inkstains on wall, crumpled
fair tissue, wasted.
I stare, helpless, at the
blotch my wrath hurled
on this windowless wall,
a shapeless drama of
blue-black neuroglia.

Manuscript on hold,
lines, wriggling with lies, lyrics
festooned with
everyday cares, abandoned
on my type-writer’s bar:
disappointed, I say,
exhausted together!

  1. I admire that you keep on trying, Mohanna. When I was young I did not do well with rejections so now I am cautious even though so much older. I keep trying to tell myself it doesn’t matter but now that I am so much older I think it matters even more. I certainly enjoy reading what you post here.

  2. ..been in so many rejections from the past – mostly on my younger years… yet i never give up.. i keep on tryin’ and now i am much better and stronger than the ever.. perhaps, that’s what life’s all about… to keep on moving no matter how worse the circumstances are.. great piece!(:

    Thanks!

  3. Great work. I particularly like:
    ‘I stare, helpless, at the
    blotch my wrath hurled
    on this windowless wall.’

    Very powerful. But I suppose it will be alright in the end. Good things come to those who wait and all that…
