Blocked – A Poem


Can’t write today
Nothing more from the muse
Wordplay, exercises
Crumpled paper

An idea grows
Into sentences and
Paragraphs will soon flow
Scenes, a vignette

A promising tale
That dies before it lives
Atrophy, apathy
Twin fates of doubt

Crumpled paper
Wordplay, exercises
Nothing more from the muse
Can’t write today

  1. I love it. It is so true. When u want to put something down it never seems to come out like u plan. When u don’t want to put it all down or so free flowing why is that?

    1. With me, I don’t think I’m ready to write, but the secret to unlocking is to just write…about anything, until it flows. My biggest problem is that I’ll start something only to lose confidence in what I’m writing and throw it all away. My work that sees daylight was lucky to have caught me on a more confident day.
