Papery woes


While I am cast away, with scorn, contempt and anger, crushed with all the force of a deeply pained heart for the fear of pure confession coming to light, I catch a glimpse of the sorrow that shrouds her moon like face like a cloud.

Carrying all those bluish blots pressed onto me by that fine, golden nib, I lie here wondering about the irony that wraps my life – impermanence, the transition from usefulness to uselessness in a fleeting second..

"The transition from usefulness to uselessness in a fleeting second" -
but the papers usefulness is not in just being matter on which words are written, it's very purpose in life is to help the writer decide on what of his work needs to be rejected and what retained.
So it neednt feel so woebegone surely...Because the writer is not rejecting the paper, but only his own thoughts/expression that are not upto the mark?

and in addition to the previous words, if you've got one of those garbage bin shooting baskets, it is not complete uselessness anyway...
