Why is this happening


Wow, I am really drawing a blank right now
I feel as if the words for my next poem are there
But, I can’t see them
No images or concepts at all
I am having a poetic withdrawal
This is not fun, I can’t even hate it
I am having trouble forming emotions
this is taxing my devotions
and consequently my enthusiasm
towards seeing the next sunny day
as I sit here, a freshly cut rose
withering, withering, withering, away
