At The Three O’Clock Hour

You’re the one my heart goes to
at the three o’clock hour
for a second more than five
stretching six until seven
drawn out like an eight
and I’m on cloud nine
when you’re always a ten

one two three four five six seven eight nine ten
net enin thgie neves xis evif ruof eerht owt eno

But there are ten reasons why
I can’t float on the nine
even though I traced an eight
after seven grew from six
I took five for just a second
at the three o’clock hour
and my heart went to no one.

About Paul

I think of my blog as an all-you-can-read buffet. There's something for everyone and complimentary mints at the door as you leave.

    Paul, how have you NOT written a new post in 5 days!?!?! hehe! πŸ™‚ I know I’m one to talk but I do quietly observe and admire the fact that you usually dish out something new on a daily. πŸ™‚

      Haha I was wondering if people would notice! I’ve just had a lack of ideas/motivation in the last week. That being said, there might be a new post tomorrow! Thanks for caring πŸ™‚

        hehe no prob. Actually, it’s not a bad thing at all to have a healthy interval between posts. It creates a sense of anticipation for readers. I certainly can never come up with enough content to produce anything daily, but when I do think of something, I can only hope that it’s quality enough for people to feel interested and engaged. πŸ™‚

        Quality over quantity, definitely! I like to think that I don’t post unless I really have something I want to say. It’s hard sometimes because I have the itch to write, but have nothing to say. As for you, I always find your blog interesting so no worries there!
