Literary Blockage

Mental brain freeze
Motionless likes still water
Snapping of the fingers?
Abra cadabra?
Looking around
Thinking…waiting for the light bulb
Staring at a blank page
Write a word
Erase it
Write a sentence
Erase it
Leave the blank page behind
Could you say I’ve lost my motivation?
Maybe from all this writing I needed a literary vacation
So many topics to expose
But exhaustion and burnout keep the book closed
And the pencil down
And the light bulb dark
For some reason
I look at the empty space
It calls my name, yearning for my thoughts
Wanted to hear what I have to say
But I have nothing
I think, I think hard
I find an idea
I go to write my idea, starting with the first letter and the first word
It never makes it to the page
What if it’s a stupid idea?
Maybe no one will really care to know
I’ve hit writer’s block
So much of something can be too much
But I miss it
I miss the expression
I miss the opinion
My person is unique beyond reason
And my person misses the chance to express herself
I have ideas
I have more intriguing thoughts?
Are you ready to hear?
Or are you suffering from literary blockage?

I have the strongest passion for writing that you can ever imagine. In fact, I have a very strong passion for the Arts in general. They're about feeling and expression, the power to let your mind wonder and let others join you in wonderment. So me, I'm an artist of sorts. I take everything I see and make it creative. Whether it be a story or a poem, whether or be a painting or a sketch, or some lyrical piece, I make sure that my ART is creative no matter what. I make sure it's creative, it's love, it's me...
