Broken Pencil Poetry. Licking the blackboard

Ambition can make us break any barriers that might stand in our way, but it can also make us break ourselves in the process. Obsession is like a vehicle that drives us when we believe we are in control and it literally runs on illusions as fuel.

It also gets rather boring at school, staring at the blackboard all day long.

I believe I've said enough about the next piece. Enjoy!

Licking the blackboard

He's licking the blackboard,
Always licking the blackboard.
The blackboard is full of chalk
Making his tongue white,
And still he's licking the blackboard.
The blackboard is cracked,
His tongue is smeared red with blood,
But he would keep on licking the blackboard.
The blackboard grows thin
And his tongue meets the wall behind it,
And he continues to lick the blackboard.
The wall grows thin and erodes into void,
Yet nothing could ever stop him
From licking the blackboard.


  1. Super to have a new post from you. This is obsessive compulsive behaviour taken to extremes! Makes me feel better about my own OC behaviour :) hope you have a wonderful weekend, Lavi.

  2. Thank you! I just couldn't write anything at the moment.
    This obsessive attacks aren't very creative times for me.

  3. Great poetry! Love this site. First time coming by and found several things I like already. New follower thru GFC and RSS Reader. Would love a follow back when you get the chance. Thanks so much for your help and have a lovely weekend.
