The Unwritten - Poem by Mark Ruiz

I find myself at a stalemate.
Between what's locked deep inside,
And the obvious around me.
Eyes shut though,
Senses numb.
My mind is whom I rely on,
Still even he is at a loss
Of words, emotion, expression.
These I can't speak nor write
And yet I find myself here,
Again, lost in this sea.
Sea of words in which I'm floating,
Not swimming or drowning.
I wish the water I would splash
On notebook or ink equally.
To share these thoughts.
Still I find no words
No idea, no punchline.
Another day...
And they will come.
