I was just thinking of how much of a pain writers
block can be and this came to mind.

Writer's block

Writer's Block
Sometimes I can close my eyes
Pictures that are deep inside
Pour out through my pen

Stories of my troubles
Problems that persist
Things that haunt me in my sleep
That only I know are there

Other times I want to write
But nothing comes to mind
I think and think
But can not find
The things that lurk inside
Stay hidden for a while

There i sit
Like a stick
Not knowing what to write
My thoughts will not come out

So down goes my pen
I sit in the den
Stumped as stumped can be

Until another day
When i can say
What's hidden inside of me

oh well...yeah writer's way out is to write our way through it by writing about it...

another one i like by you...fuzzy gets clear and the words finally come...i never try to force them....but i do write often about writer's gets the juices flowing usually and breaks through the dam.

did you mean "problems that persist"?

and last line
"what's hidden inside of me"?

  I loved this. It decribed what having writers block feels like so well. At first I kind of pictured the poem like mine sort of. I wrote about not being able to write. But yours added more to it. You expressed how it feels to not be able to bring out the thoughts inside of you. And of course, anybody who writes has probably exprerienced this before.

Great work

  i enjoyed this poem because there have been times in my life when i have felt exactly like this. You have potential to be writing like this at such a young age, you should keep it up.

  this was very cool, and original (for me anyway) I never thought of writers block as a subject for verse. at the end I was thrown off when you say "when I can say", I would change that to write, if you can, I see your dilemma there. But this was really inventive.
When I want to create but can't I just observe others creations-music, movies, book, TV, and I have been getting into reading poems online.

  It always comes out eventually ! A sound piece of self-reflection and self-realisation - well done.
Just write when you are ready and not because you feel you have to. That is the key !

  This happens to me so often. When I cant think of words to express myself actually its kind happening right But anywayz this was good. I can finally relate to something. And finally something thats not about cutting ( you'd think these people would lose enough blood to just die already). wait that was mean nvm. but anywayz I liked you poem.
