Writer’s Block (A Poem)

Writer’s Block 

Written on July 17, 2013

Sitting in a corner,

Pen in hand,

Blank pages staring,

Relentless, harsh, intimidating

Ideas come flowing

One after the other,

Until the mind can’t hold it in


Yet the words don’t come.

Note: I have been writing poems since I was in primary school. In high school, I discovered that I preferred free verse poems, poems in which I could just write, and not be bound by any rules- true freedom of expression. This, for me is a historical moment as this is the first poem I have written since I stopped writing poems in high school. I’m happy and relieved to know that I still CAN write.
