Block - Poem by Amy Carr

Pen on paper.

But nothing more.

Ink pressing into the void.

Missing the words.

The language.

Only sentiment, raw and useless.

Thoughts are clouded.

Trying to find you in the silence.

Eyes staring at blank pulp praying for inspiration

like water.

Without you, I am lost.

Floundering in my own misery.

Pathetic and alone.

Scrambling to find myself among the pieces.

    Writer's Block Haiku

    A single blank page
    Is the only thing between
    Me and my freedom.
