To Write Or Not To Write

A pen and paper on the desk
Wondering what I will write next
Something silly, fun or scary
Maybe I will make you teary
With the words and lines I wrote
From all of my little notes
Jotting down my crazy thoughts
So their not misplaced or lost
Sometimes I can write forever
Something inside pulls a lever
Sentences will flow with ease
Its like a writing disease
That invades me every time
I can't control my love of rhymes
Other times it takes a halt
Thoughts locked up inside a vault
That wont open--it's locked shut
There's no words inside my gut
Emptiness fills up my soul
Leaving me alone and hallow
No inspiration to release
These deep feeling inside me
Day to day I never know
Will there be something to show
To my poet friendly group
Know as The Poetry Soup
That I've come to really see
As more than friends--their family

    lol Bet you didn't know there is an actual term for this "problem" did you? It's called "hypergraphia", which is the overwhelming urge to write, and I have experienced it MANY times in my life, so I totally feel you on this poem and so completely relate. Taught you something new today, didn't I? lol Great write, Sweet Pea <3
