    It all started when I noticed that my watch was gone
    How am I supposed to know when I should write now?
    And who could take it? No one visited me lately
    I'm all alone in this room, writing down my thoughts

    I woke up a few days ago without a blanket or pillow
    I can not work this way any longer, it's getting cold
    Why would anyone need an old blanket and why mine?
    The door stays closed, yet things keep on disappearing

    I didn't have much to start with: some old furniture
    Some personal belongings and gifts, my books are gone
    I can not find any inspiration at all in this room
    I'm afraid I'll wake up on the cold floor one morning

    There's nothing left now, just this bed I'm sitting on
    Some paper and a pen I have managed to hide away
    I'm writing all this down, I have made a long list
    And I'm asking you, the kind reader of these words:

    Why are you stealing all these pieces of my life?

      I really liked this, I could see the pieces disappearing. Any inspiration that you had has disappeared, and you are sitting there, lost. Nice write, sorry I don't have more input.

      I've also written of writers block. Now I realized its more topic block the days seem to roll into each other and I've failed to find something meaningful to spen an afternoon or evening jotting down. My only crtisism it I woke with out no blanket. It should a woke without blanket or a blanket or with no blanket take you pick. As for stealing pieces of your life You offer them and the hunger snatch them up.

      while i enjoyed the bits an pieces disappearing. i think the poem doesn't have to be about writers block at all. the imagery and word choice brought something very different to me

    a good write tho i'm sure i took it the wrong way

      Dont you think writers block poems are a little gimmicky?
    Its like an ironic little in-joke that people have:

    "I cant write a poem at the moment but I can write a poem about not being able to write a poem"

    It doesnt make sense to me and itd have to be very original to pull it off seeing as how its been done before so many times.

    Im not sure you nailed it this time...

      this is a fresh take on an old topic for writers. i like the rising tone of desperation in the piece; u do a good job w/that. nice work.

      I actually really liked it. And it doesn't seem anything like what i write during writers block. It had a point and a format, so at least you still have something. Hopefully you get back the stuff you've lost and lose this horrid writers block, because it sucks, i know it does. Just keep trying. And one day, it will all come back to you, sometimes even more beautifully than before.

    Also it helps to read other poets work for inspiration.Classics are usually the best I like RObert Frost. :)

      That is an interesting way of looking at things. Hope you find your muse agian soon. It is always so grey when you stare at the page in front of you and all your words run the other way.
