I Want To Write

I want to write
But I don’t have the words
So I watch the ink seep silently
I know you’re thinking I’m absurd

So many empty notebooks
To fill with small little doodles & swirls
Intimidated by the stark whiteness
I don’t know how to create lasting worlds

Pondering & delving into thought
Present in my feelings with offerings to burn
Slowly churning my fickle imagination
In the hopes a bit of creativity might return

  1. Argh! I can soooo relate to this, Captain! It’s usually a combination of factors that conspire to keep me from putting words down. Procrastination and fear are probably the biggest culprits. Hang in there and keep showing up!

    • I’m glad you like it. Obviously I’m trying to write about not being able to write… it hurts my head some days. But the inspiration comes in trickles these days. Hopefully, they’re worthy of writing down.
