        Writers block is a horrible thing, and when you get that urge to write something and no sparks seem to catch, it's hard to remember that it's not permanent.
    I wrote this on one such occasion.

    Why won't this pen do what I ask
    why won't the words form true

    I can't describe a simple shade,
    nor tell of darkening hue

    So much to say, yet cannot speak
    the words that match the time

    and though I try, I cannot seem
    to build a simple rhyme

    The words, the words- evade my grasp
    slip quickly past my fingers

    and though I coax them to my mind
    they never care to linger

    They run from me, their taunting ghost
    is all they leave behind

    a simple shadow of themeselves
    -these words I try to find

    I hate them, yet I need them so
    to satisfy my craving

    to intensify my crazy poems
    and fill my senseless raving

    Sweet poetry floats from my mind
    with pretty flattering words

    like peacocks who've no right to fly
    like gorgeous, useless birds

    And though it seems there is no hope,
    though the perfect words I lack

    I know deep inside my sidewise mind
    somehow the words come back

      he he he
    We share that insecurity all of us creative folk but "IT'z" during these times we really do have a lot of inspiration & words but we have a feeling that doesn't go with them. Some things can't be said - I've learned that 2
    This is wonderful, friend, for what you shared.
    Love,Peace,JOY&Smilez 2 share
    ps: "IT" is funny, 2, because <@> had a comment today on one of my writer's block pieces - Where for art thou, Muse? I love the seemingly random coincidences =0

      hi there I really enjoyed reading this, I went through a black spot in the past couple of weeks and it's frustrating. I hesitate calling it 'writers block' as you can always think of something even if it's dogpoo. on returning to the notes you may be surprised what you can salvage from the wreckage.
    but enough rambling, I'm not sure why you split this so much it would fit perfectly as stanzas of 4 and moves along with effortless ease. You have some good lines in there to.
    It's well worn subject matter but you managed to pull out something that catches the eye. Cheers.

      If only I could have a "block" like that! LOL!
    I'll be looking for your work to see it when the
    "block" is lifted. This was a good read. Thanks!

      Love how you say was writer's block into such a good poem. I love the flow of it. You depict that feeling that alot of writers experience so well. Great Job!

      Hello stranger.

    If this is what you call writers block, then I am at a loss. Your structure, rhyme, flow and theme was as good as anything you have written. I have told you before, and I will say it again, you have a very real talent.
