       God, such horrible inspiration block for the last month or so. I have nothing to write about, so I wrote about that just to get something out.

    dotsWhen Paper Cries Out in Protestdots
    -------------------------------------------


    Edentulous, I am using words
    like mashed peas or applesauce,
    discolored smears on paper that tears
    itself apart in a frenzy of disgust

    And I am wandering between midwives
    and old folkís attendants, looking for storms,
    or souls, or a sky burning with cold gods;

    a search for something that isnít sex or loveó
    poor things beaten to death and then someó
    but itís not here, itís not here, itís not here.

      this is a pretty good writer's block poem. There are so many times that I do not have any inspiration at all. Whenever that happens, I force it out. I just start writing about what I am currently seeing/thinking about and often transform it into something pretty cool. I like how you did that in this piece.

    Sometimes lack of inspiration can be inspiration itself. Ta-da! Magic!

    "a search for something that isnít sex or loveó

    --> I feel this way a lot as well. You are looking for something fresh and original; you don't want to turn to things like "sex or love" for poetry or inspiration. And, it's true, those things can truly be "beaten to death and then some".

    Well done, saartha. Keep up the fight.

      This is a pretty accurate feeling of how I am when I have writer's block. I tear up probably perfectly good poems not so much because they aren't decent, but because it's not what I'm looking for and I don't feel like it's worth the paper I write it on.

    This is definately good for somebody who says they're having trouble writing. I wish this is how my writer's block was. Haha.

      I honestly think some of my favorite poems are about writers block. I think because they seem so random yet understandable.

    sometimes we gotta gum it before the meat and potatoes come...

    You have woven some wonderful lines through this and none of it seems trite, clichťd or forced.
