Dear Old Writers Block

I pace the corners of my brain
Back and forth, forth and back
But the words never make their appearance
I scratch at the cracks of my cortex
Tearing everything away like a mad man
Demanding to get a peek at inspiration
But I only found cob-webs and dust
Impatiently I freak out
Shoving the words 
But the words shove back
Letting me know
Who’s really in control here
I sit, defended by dear old writers block
Wondering if I’ll ever
Be the writer I intended to be.

    This is a wonderful shove to give that dang writers block! With the abilities you have displayed in both your postings you have nothing to worry about. Your talent is shining! Love, Robin
