NEED HELP!  I can't stop thinking
and I don't know what to do
the words they keep on coming
seems that they are never through.

How they grow and multiply
and fill up all my brain
which is now in overflow
and driving me insane!

I think they plan to drown me
in a poets wordy sea
need a way to slow the words
still growing inside me.

I really need some answers
and I really need them fast!
Can anybody HELP ME?
Worried how long I will last!

Trapped in a poets nightmare
knowing if they go away
I will want them back again
and for them I will pray!

    dont worry when you go dry you'll go dry. just write while that Spirit is still with you because when He leaves you don't know when He'll be back. john

    I think most writers would welcome your influx of ideas. Enjoy them when they come! Writer's block sure isn't any fun. Enjoyed this poem. Thanks for sharing it and for your ongoing encouragement. Karen

    Robin, you certainly don't drown in "a poet's wordy sea." You have mastered the talent to craft short, beautiful verses that hit the target. Alas, 'til I who drowns in that sea. This is such a nice read, and I'm sure many of us on Poetrysoup can relate to the feeling of having words "growing inside" them! And thanks for directing me to Brian's explanation of the footle. As for me, "Keep tryin', ain't rhymin'." See, still too many syllables! Carolyn

    I really think this is very cleverly done Robin, you've asked for help, this is all I can suggest: Switching off can be a problem I know just what you mean Let's go and see the hypnotist And wipe em all out clean. Regards.Déirdre

    ....because "Precious Robin," from what I have been blessed to behold thus far from within "Your Heart & Souls Wonderous Revealings," you never know what glorious piece of art, "Your Splendors" shall produce out of nowhere, next!!?~"My Love Always Unto You Dear Lady & All You Love, Forever, John!!!":)

    Smile~You always seem to have an over-flowing of words, rushing through your wonderful thoughts dear lady!!!~"Hello Precious & Gifted & Beautiful Robin!!!"~Well, my sincere advice would be, always carry a note pad and pen with you~even by your bedside let them wait~until, there is no denying, that the wonderfully word filled dam is about to break....cont....
