A Project, gathering dust

Stored away for no eyes to read; 

“Not yet- It’s not finished” 

Writer’s block makes the way difficult

-going up stream without a pencil- 

Worried about editing,

Worried about missing pieces. 

How can you connect the beginning and the end?

Worried if it’s too cheesy,

 Worried if it’s to fake,

Worried that it’s not far-fetched enough to be fantasy.

But you love these characters 

Each holding a piece of;

Who you are,

Who you were, 

Who you want to be. 

You can hear them chattering

-in the back of your mind- 

Practically unnoticed

As other projects must take Precedence. 

Soon, but never soon enough you’re back:

Click, click, clacking

Tick, tack, typing 

Desperate to know;

Where shall they go?

Who will fall in love? 

Who will fall out?

It’s as much a mystery to you

As you hope it will be to Them. 

Eventually it’s typed 

But that’s never

    Think many of us can relate to writers block - i never force myself to write - will leave a poem and come back to it when my muse comes back from her holiday:-) hugs Jan xx
