from dusk till dawn

silent is my whisper silent is my pen silent is my wimper should they dare to listen in nothing says this poem nothing says this page nothing says ideals that i keep inside my head gone are all my feelings gone are all my words gone are dreams of wonders that are very seldom heard barren is my cleverness barren is my clown barren is the poet i always kept around absent is the artist absent are the claims absent is the messenger that bids remember his name missing are the phrases missing are the verbs missing are the verses that made souls to stir away is the conscious away with the pride away are the love letters somewhere locked inside without a purpose without a plea without reservations there is nothing inside of me zero inspiration zero spark of light zero taste of saddness nothing with which to write

ya know I posted and deleted 4 other poems before I mastered one. Poetry without real inspiration, the flow, isn't an art to me... know what you mean somewhat, have a blessed day, Cindy

Well, your writer's block flows beautifully. You managed to cover all the reason's we feel empty when wanting to write but this shows inspiration is elusive till something lights the fire. You are on fire! Luv, Lizzie

You are so right! For real poetry, there must be a fire.

It's called writers block. In spite of your block, your words and stanzas were in excellence. God bless, yeah, she's back, and it's all good, "The Situation", many blessings and hopes, you are in my thoughts and prayers, Lucinda

Just writing unblocks the poet and lets the beast have his way.
