"I" for "Id(ea)-iotic poem "

I am sitting at my office desk and waiting for some inspiration to kick in.
I feel like throwing the numerous documents which need to be reviewed in the dust bin.
Doing time pass during the working hours is an unforgivable sin.
A person doing some thing similar near by feels like a kin!

The A to Z challenge is making me restless and sleepless.
The boss and the work are being careless and relentless.
If I put forward my concerns of a blogging challenge will I sound reckless?
If I keep on blogging with joy will the colleagues around me get jealous?

 Still no luck , no light and no brightening idea in my head.
 Looks like I need to quit being creative and work only to earn bread.
The man in the adjacent cubicle who is eyeing me from an hour is my dread.
Thank God it is 5 P.M. in the evening and he has already fled!

As I sit and ponder as to what I should write with the letter "I",
many words hit me randomly and my brain is heated up to be a fry.
To avoid the confusion I go to the Ato Zers and shout for help and cry.
They instantly gave a bunch of words and "ideas" asking me to try!

From "I" to ice-cream to inspiration to India to idea to Imran,
I was told,”You just need to think, anything and everything can be written."
I thought of writing about my husband Imran but it felt silly.
I thought of ice-cream, went to food court to have one and just dilly dally!

I lost all my hopes and felt like just forgetting the letter I.
Then suddenly an idea made me smile and there was a sparkle in my eye.
I thought of writing my plight, my insight and the desire to not lose the fight.
Hence wrote this id(ea)otic poem which may actually sound idiotic and not right! :)

After writing this I was just googling and found the below poem ;)

Thanks to the supportive group A to Zers. In their absence I would have quit this challenge :)

What do you think about this ? I always love to hear back. A comment or a brickbat boosts me to write more but the mud slinging shall be promptly vacuumed.

Thanks for your time :)
