Writer's Block

I can’t write today, 
Or yesterday, 
Or the day before.

I've been stuck in the city, 
When I've wanted to go to the country. 
I've been sitting in a car, 
Instead of flying in a plane. 
I've not been able to write, 
I've been blocked.

The words have ran from my head.
Ran to a place I've never been, 
Ran to a place I can’t reach, 
Ran from my grip, 
They have left for what seems an eternity.

I need my letters back. 
I need my numbers back. 
I need my freedom of writing back.
