a taste of remorse

sipping steaming tea
to soothe my raw swollen throat
thick with reserved tears

dollop of honey
added to my strong Earl Grey
sweetening regrets

    I touch your fevered brow
    frowning at the peril
    regretting
    flames I could not kindle

    First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick
    question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Appreciate it!
