Mining thoughts for golden nuggets
For any kind of creative appeal
For anything present ready to spill
Trickle from between suddenly quiet head space
Misplaced troubles is the source of this
Fallowed ground left open and split
Is my time close, my signal to quit?
I expected poetic expression with a bit more wit
Pit of black, dammed flow,
Empty screen where words should go
Confused rhetoric, colloquial phrase
Still suffer from the need for praise
Raise my thoughts like community children
Like a Sunday hallelujah choir
Like amens going higher and higher
Until blessings in the form of stories rain down
Now you can follow me ’round
Along blocked, twisted paths
Not to salvation or hearty laughs
But to frustration and convoluted poetry
Not just me
But I hate this dammed creativity
(Or the lack thereof) eluding me
Desk chair squeaking
Like the air blowing through my mind
Mind you I’ll finish soon
Not with something to make you swoon
Less arousing, more…
Grousing about my missing words
the hell are my words when I need them?
Hopscotching on cool sidewalks,
Glad you could
lurk stop by
And listen to me
Love the flow.
Thanks! I’m feeling decidedly blocked today.
Hopefully you’ll be free soon, but this really was quite nice.
This was the most creative writer’s block piece I’ve ever read!
My frustration in the form of odd poetry. I haven’t written a story in days.
Would you want to be part of a writing challenge? Check this out:
I have to ask three people to join me and I am not sure who to ask. If this is something you might be interested in, would you care to join?
Sure! That looks like something I need to do and I’d love to partner with you. 🙂
Wonderful! I’m working on the post and as soon as I can get it done I will let you know! I’m so glad we can partner! Thank you!!!
No problem. This is going to be good for me too. I’m thinking of my goals and asking 2 other people to join me.
I can’t wait to read your goals, it has already been an interesting thing to ponder for days for me. 🙂
I despise writer’s block when it affects the people I look forward to reading.
I wish I could give you pointers but I am not a writer. 🙂
Love the poem though…
Poetry is my go-to when prose lets me down. I’ve been writing a lot of it lately.
hugs I am enjoy it…
The poetry helps me sometimes.
Parts of it are almost like an incantation. Maybe you need to invoke your muse.
I’m willing to do whatever is necessary at this point!
Oh my…writers block has been driving me mad. Smirks… The crossing out…of the words…a great touch to your creativity.
It makes me crazy, but it seems to show up with regularity. Thanks! 🙂
Oooh, I like.
Damn this block – it is infectious. I can’t think of anything to write as a comment, although I feel the need to leave one. Preferably witty, full of insight, slightly comforting but not cloying. Suggestions welcome.
Sorry to pass my block on to you. Try writing poetry, it always helps me.
