Slothful Self-Sabotage

Sticky swirl of cooling caramel
Sludgy sloth of slow-moving thought
Abundant articulation absent without authority
Clear cognition cloudy and cluttered
With worries, wonderings and tomorrow
These thoughts thwarted before triumphant
Disassembled by doubt and diagnostic deconstruction
Prohibitively preventing perpetual progress
The assaulting stone in one’s own shoe
Stopping the savouring of sugary success
Diligently dripping for your tongue to touch
