    Been there done that...several times unfortunately lol. This is a piece in which most of us can identify. Nice David :)

    It is a common malady we all get Glad you have made a humerous piece out of these stubborn 'words' LOL

    So true. Enjoyed this tremendously. I think as writers and poets we all identify. Some people write brilliant pieces when sad, others when happy. The worst is when a flash of inspiration pops into our heads-- we forget to pen it instantly, and then it dissapears.

    haha this is witty and clever, the title drew me in because this is something I experience at times, too! bursts of inspiration, then nothingness...you can't force it :-)

    Treasure of poetic sense always gets release in the morning time in general because of freshness after night rest. Wonderful capture. Thanks................ Loved always, bl

    Wow, this poem is spectacular, by far one of my favorites I have ever read (and I'm not just saying that). Is it published or what? It's really good, and you are extremely talented... I've read some of your other poems as well. You should visit my site: poeticpossibilities.tk ! I think this poem could have a really good chance of winning one of our contests! Wish you the best with your poetry and I hope you get published! : )Jacob Cramer

    I think we can all relate to writers block. Enjoyed your poem.

    You have described it perfectly my friend but I am sure you will chase all them little blocking beggars away... as it seems you have already started .xx

    Writers Block? Yeah! UH HUH! Great Write! This would be good for the Nightmare contest. Eh?

    David..if you can write a great poem like this during writers block,you`ll write our heads around when your muse comes around again!! Have a peaceful weekend my friend!

    A brilliant and very very clever poem, if writers block can produce wonders like this, wow the world of poetry awaits...

    That's sad but hilarious. Three boiled eggs a day....gross. Thanks for my comments on my new poems. I thought the avatar was you and you looked so young. So, when you said you had 3 married children, I was really confused. xxoo Holly

    oh, that is awesome how you ended with "in the morning they beg to be released" I believe that almost every poet who is sincere in his writing has written at least one poem about the reluctant muse. GOOD one.

    Let's head rest - Have a relaxed weekend, David. - Well written. - -oxox / / Anne-Lise :)

    Hi David sums up writers block brilliantly, hope you are ok and the words will soon flow my friend, all the best Owen

    Ha ha, yes this seems to be how writers block feels like at times! The works are right there on the tip of your tongue but you can't seem to say them nor write anything down that resembles any sensible write! This is a intriguing and wondrous poem my friend! I truly loved reading this delightful piece this afternoon, Great Work!!
