Victims Of A Writer's Block Poem by Roshni D'Souza

Victims Of A Writer's Block

Said Pen to Pad:

I'm waiting here expectantly
Hoping quite ardently
That any decrepit old muse
Will put herself to use,
However lame or flawed;
I'm tired of just being gnawed.

Each false start, just a tease.
My senses you more than please.
I want more than just to list
Things to do and items missed.
Hoping she gets in the groove
And endlessly above you, let's me move.

Replied Pad to Pen:

If you think you've waited long,
You, indeed, are very wrong.
I'm tired of oodles and oodles
Of scratches and mere doodles.
Numbers she'll never call;
Lists that won't get done at all.

Rest assured, you suffer not alone.
To your pain, I add my own.
I yearn for unhindered embrace
From your finger to my face.
But this thing called 'writer's block',
Takes more than one key to unlock.

You have a great imagination, well penned. I can see the pad talking to the pen; just like watching Cartoon TV. Carry on the good work.
