Blank Page

Too long have I been staring at this cruel blank page before me, My crazed, hysteric mind screaming and imploring I know there is a message that's dying to come out— I need to fill this confounded page without the slightest doubt! It's a simple predicament to manipulate, Into a mass of thought A futile attempt to insinuate, Weak hints are left with naught I sit here in silent desperation, What can fill this page? I slap myself in indignation, My eagerness becoming rage! Like roaches sporadically running from light My thoughts are but a haze The words I write just don't seem right, On this cruel blank page!

    It appears you have filled many blank pages since giving this first offering. Based on the quality of the writing I would say you have much to be proud of. I am impressed.

    The first entry you have for the soup is a perfect introduction of the cascade of material that was to follow it. It felt like you were summoning the poems to come forth and fill an ancient yet blank book. You accidentally spill the ink and words begin forming and thus begins the journey.

    I decided to go back to your first posted poem and see where it all started and oh yeah, did it ever start!... You shoulda slapped that blank page instead of yourself, then torn it into little pieces, stomped on it, ground it into the floor, laughed and pointed at it then...

    Brilliant description of the emotional toll of writers block. It's especially hard when you have a deluge of emotion ready to flow and no words to set them free into the world. It's good to see you beat the block. Awesome

    Beginning is always so hard. Look back now and realize how you have grown. Life is a circle game. ~Kilmer
