Why Can't I Write?

Why can't I seem to write?

Is it the clouds in the sky?

Or is it the storm in my heart?

My hand and pen always fight

Maybe if I try to look at the light

That lives in the sky

While a dot of that

Tries to brighten up my soul

Yet again

I pick up the pen

And try to avoid the hole

That is there

I fight and I struggle

With the weapon in my hand

Should I write and reach inside

Or should I give up my command

While fighting this battle

I ended up in the land

Of my imagination

Where the hand and the pen

Work in harmony to create a land

Of pure salvation!

How true! When I have writer's block, I just write about writer's block. My latest Christmas story was inspired by that.

Good work!

Hi Tamik.

I know how you feel. There are times when i can't find or don't know what to write about.

Sometimes i open my dictionary and have a look for a word and then do research and see what comes of it. Doesn't always work but aleast it's keeping your mind busy.

Take care and have a nice day.

LOL Ghaelach
