Frustrated

Rating: 4.8
I waited
Pen held above a blank sheet
I waited, but nothing
I looked around and waited
For something
Something that can awaken
This mind, dormant for so long
But nothing
I want to write
But this mind is blank
This pen remained unused

For me those moments of poetic clarity are pretty rare. Nice work Jemarie.

Even God rested on the seventh day or, should I say after he created man and woman and turned over everything to them.

'The cure for writer's cramp is writer's block.' -Inigo DeLeon Anyone who is serious about writing has undoubtedly experienced droughts that seemingly last forever, sometimes to the extent of exasperation. For me, the record is 56 days. See, I even counted each dreaded verseless day. Greg

This is the first poem I''ve read about- no poem to write! Very witty, and I can relate. Thanks for sharing the process with us Craig

Your poem takes apparent nothingness and turns it into captivating poem. Well done.

Frustrated (as a poet experiencing a writer block) for me is synonymous with burnt out.Yes I agreed to JoAnn's comment. Poetry cannot just become a framework to manufacture like objects.It is about feelings: an inspiration of love, remorse, hate, etc. There must be something triggering to unload such emotions into an instinctive creation of poetry.Good point madam. Thank for sharing.10.
