Writers BLOCK

Its sides are solid
               6 sides
    Hollow, but within
                         I sit
Tapping my pen
               6 sides 
crumbling this paper
            piece of paper 



                      Staring 
at me and
               6 sides 
     screaming blank
Lines begging to hold
                   words
      words 
              my words
                6 sides 
This is built 
              with
                6 sides 
trapping many 
     many writers trapped 
              within 
                6 sides 
   these solid sides 
Although hollow inside 
                    you sit

Damn 
        tapping this pen 
against these
                6 sides 
    Until
              They  
                        Fall
And 
          All 
                  These
                               Thoughts 
come
  pouring 
            in     and words 
                          form beautiful 
                        beautiful words
                  they  form 
                               into 
SOMETHING at last
               No
                 6 sides 
      trapping us 
                     inside

    Hi Lacy... don't know the name of the form (or even if it has a name) but you've really captured what you wanted to describe! Terry

    This is the first poem that I wrote in this form. I saw a few written like this. I felt that it fits well with the poem. Does anyone know exactly what type of poem you would label it?? Thanks!! let me know what you think...
