Writers Block (A Funny Poem)

Updated on August 16, 2012

I never thought I would have said, this day I should have stayed in bed.

This story will not write itself, but I wish it would its damaging my health!

I wander lonely as a cloud, oh screw you Wordsworth I say out loud.

Stick two fingers up to my computer; our love hate relationship requires sutures; as I bang my head on my keyboard again.

Where is the creative flow I once called a friend? Instead to be replaced by this writers block,

oh how I desire to unlock; the secret room labelled new ideas, Instead I have self loathing and five cans of beer

Mouths to feed and a novel to write, one must wonder if I’ll give up the fight.

Once it seemed like I fulfilled my dream, now I just stare at this blank computer screen.

      Haha they told me that when I was wearing a full armour roman soldier costume, dropped my sword, was unable to pick it up so had to kick it off stage in front of all the parents at my primary school, to a chorus of laughter, good times! thanks for commenting!

      Love the line about Wordsworth, but it should be 'wander' rather than 'wonder'.
