Rust is Settling In

Rust is settling in, making itself comfortable;  moving in with it is a feeling of profound laziness, an almost impossibly never-ending prime time slot with sloth and a vestigial sense of loss.

Yes, the urges are still there, but there is no motivation. You try writing but you end up staring at the stark white screen instead, hypnotized with the cursor’s never ending blinking frenzy.

And I’m afraid of this newer, lackadaisical version of me.

For there is one more tenant who has come to set up shop with rust: nostalgia for all the things  one loves to do and yet finds oneself unable to do them.

    but you know the fact that you portrayed it in such a way shows you dont have it. only the laziness part, :p

  3. I would ‘like’ this but I cannot bring myself to like the rusting of such a talent. so no… won’t be clicking that button… when you write something, then.. then I will click the button
