WRITER’S BLOCK

 

WORDS THAT WILL NOT COME TO ME

MY BREATH IS SHORT WITH FEAR

IS THIS PERHAPS DENIED TO ME

THE WORDS NO LONGER HERE.

 

WHY I WONDER IS IT SO

I HAVE SO MUCH TO SAY

THE PAPER JUST STARES BACK AT ME

TO WORDS I CANNOT STRAY.

 

CLOSED IS MY MIND TO HAND THIS DAY

AND EVERYTHINGS AMISS

BUT SOON I HOPE THIS FOG WITH LIFT

AND GIVE ME BACK THE WORDS I MISS.

 

PERHAPS A SPARK WILL SOON APPEAR

AND BURST UPON THIS PAGE

IF NOT I GUESS MY TIME IS DONE

THE END OF SUCH AN AGE.

 

AND SO GOODBYE I SAY TO YOU

TIS SAID WITH HEAVY HEART

BUT NEVER FEAR I WILL RETURN

I WILL NOT JUST DEPART.

    Expresses the Block quite well! There are stories you want to tell, stories that need to be told, and stories people pay for. If you can line up two out of three, I think you’ll eventually run across the diamond, slap some hands and sit in the dugout. Whether that yields applause or not is not immediately important. However, if you persevere, sooner or later the applause will rise around your work, some acclaim, and then your earlier work will get a look.

    Really hope the writer’s block go’s away soon. I have so much pleasure on each of you’re blogs Pam, it will make me sad to have to go with-out reading you, make it happen soon please. (I do know it is not some-thing an artist can control) Sharon
