"Writer's Block"

This writer’s block has me yelling for peace

I cannot be heard

My voice falls flat

I have spoken no words

I try to write

My mind refuses to create

This writer’s block

I love to hate

For hours I stare into space

Working at less than a turtles space

I want to chase it around

This writer’s block has me spell bound

Ideas come and go so quick

Unable to grab them, they are too thick

Only one thought is all I need

But this writes block is full of greed

It mocks me from way down deep

Even when I try to sleep

Digesting what I think

Nothing but a tape worm thirsting for a drink

One day maybe it will go away

But for now it’s just a parasite holding me at bay

I think we've all been there, David. Other than this site and my blog I've gone stale as far as writing. I used to be able to conjure up odd little tales from out of nowhere, but lately my job has taken up all of my brain and zapped my creativity. You'll get over it in time.

That is a very nicely written poem, one I can relate to a lot. I get writer's block a lot. I hope you come back here to write soon.
