Droplets of Verse: ‘Writer’s Block’

You sit there looking at the page
The page stares blankly back at you
You’re locked in a wordless cage
You sit there looking at the page
So glad you’re not up on stage
With your heart and soul all askew
You sit there looking at the page
The page stares blankly back at you

  1. The worst part? I know writer’s block only in my head, but so far it’s not listening to the eviction notice.

    1. Thanks, Beverley. I’m flattererd. And I’m pleased enough with many of my efforts, but am still developing so it’s great to get your support so regularly.

    1. Could be interesting . . . I never really believed in writer’s block until recently, but the poetry really helped me work through it , and I like to tackle the demon head on.

      1. I’m working on triolets at the moment, trying to get to grips with them, so it was one that popped out last night. ‘Mezzanine Mind’ is also about writer’s block and is a bit longer and more freestyle.

    1. There’s always plenty to say, but it’s the execution that is often the stumbling block, particularly if one wants to stretch as a writer, take on fresh challenges, and enter new territory. That stuff I guess.

  2. lovely poem! it may not be a writer’s block, it could just be ideas hibernating and waiting for the right moment, for the right trigger! Susan and I examine this issue in one of our duet – drinking and breathing!
