i am shipwrecked fever;
kerosene sleep,
& she is denied oxygen.

i taste sirens on the shore
of her collarbones,
& salt-licked sea limbs.

but, it's the natural disaster
wrapped around her coral spine
that really has my lungs
Please cure me of this dreaded writers block. T^T

But it seems most of my work is a form of writers block. :/

Oh well.

respiration. by *DearPoetry catches the eye with interesting metaphors. ( Suggested by Namicat101 and Featured by thorns )
Your over all poem is very good, you gave it a twist, and I love it.

You made this poem stand out, and made it your own, I loved how you really reached out tho the reader, good job.

Your a good writer and you know how to keep your poem flowing.

The over all set up of this poem caught my eye, and made me want to read it. The more interesting and eye catching you make your work, shows you know what your doing. I want to wish you the best of luck at writing, you have true talent.

i am going on like three years or something now. i write disjointed lines constantly, seriously, every day, and cant produce anything that even slightly resembles something finished

If this is a form of writer's block, I should get blocked more often O_o
