Dry Spell

Withering
shriveling all up
inside, I
cannot tell
how long I'll remain in this
hell of a dry spell

No rainfall
here, except for tears
and sometimes
they go dry
too numb to cry, too tired
to feel inspired

The words crack
crumble in my mouth
before I
get them out
primal screams and shouts silenced
by fear and self-doubt

Soul searching
something worth saving
amid this
gloomy mess
sorting out my worst, my best
while I pray for rain...

___

Yet another Shadorma poem...

"Soul searching something worth saving" -save it all, Rhona. Better yet, make notes daily. You never know when one is going to jump up and bite you in the imagination petootsie.

Nothing like writing a poem about a dry spell to open the floodgates.
