Everything here is so fucking
loud and this dragon eyed girl
doesn’t feel like filtering
anymore.

She doesn’t want to answer
the phone today, either, so-
she stuffs her ears with
silence, and
her mouth with new
names
as she kisses
swollen knees.

She’s pondering
socks now too
with
their mixed &
matched indecency.

Real ladies wouldn’t
dare step outside
wearing one pink
& one green sock,
only,

but she’s no lady.-

A red lipped hermit
holding a knife to her
own throat, screaming-


writewritewritewrite
idareyou!



maybe,
who embraces
the sun and
the rain on her face
for the first time
in weeks.

Oh poets with your
pretty words and
old souls,
this is what true
writers block
looks like.

"as she kisses
swollen knees." this struck me as very good description. You present the frustration very effectively.

I felt something while reading this. I connected most with the first three stanzas. I think this was very well written.

Because it's so abstract but still poetic

It's not all that difficult to throw up something with writer's block. The key is to lower your standards, follow instincts, create a mess, then slowly put the pieces together

Yeah, when I have writer's block, everything's just a big blank, even my instincts.

Then describe the blankness :D Most of my "poetry" was written while drunk and suffering from total writer's block... You can't just wait for writer's block to go away by itself, you have to do battle with it
