I pour into this pen letting the moments escape me
Watching twisted thoughts on the paper beg to flee
Finding only memories laying naked under all this ink
Enticed by the empty poison sitting at the bottom of my drink
With empty echoing lips
I trace every sentence with my finger tips
Feeling this journey across the page
Trying to tame the wild boundless rage
Digging to find the key to all this pressure
I'm stimulated to search for such a treasure
But even though on this page feelings dance and play
I'm still lost with no words or thoughts to say
it makes me think of all the time when emotions overrun me and i have so much to say but i cant get them down on paper, or the moments when the idea still remains but it keeps slipping through my hands as i try to put it down.
sometimes after finding the words and putting them, i find them too naked for comfort, or that they stir the memories and emotions... so many things, so many times that a piece doesn't come out...or it comes out but not in a way we want it to
What a sharp and direct projection of ones thoughts; well written. I loved the way you tied this all together a really pwerfull emotive in your piece here; well done FairD, I just love the way you express yourself ... it's real xx
I indeed know that feeling. I have come to think that I have the complete story mentally, but when shaking the page with words my eyes see a certain word I've written then another thought comes to mind. Like should I let it go or investigate how far I can take the word. Then in the meanwhile I've lost my mental progression of the story. So, I've learned to continue writing then after I've gotten through to so much writing, I go back and pick out key words to see if they will make the writing better. Before I begin a story I make an outline of the complete story so I won't be sidetracked if I have another thought .
I'm many times surprised at how a single word can conjure up thoughts for another story. I find that words beginning with an l or h usually sidetrack me. I take another paper and write those words down. This I think is what causes writer's block: There are too many images coming through for another story or for a new twist to what is being written.
most writers experience this even with out an impending deadline. i for one dont usually have trouble writing my essays for class but it i often have trouble writing for teh sake of writing, especially lately. i used to almost consider myself a writer, now i'll go out to the park and sit on a rock beside the lake. pen in hand. planning on making a day out of it. then all i'll be able to do is remember snippets of things that really don't mean much and i never go back home with the start of a story.
when you're not able to write, it is not because the pen's ink is dried up, it is the writer's imagination, creativity, motivation, whatever that's dried.
be able to write does come back though.
i suggest checking your spelling, youve spelled pen as in pin.
also the second line the first stanza seems a bit too lengthy, making it awkward when compared to what follows.
