Writer’s… b l o c k?


When you hit upon a writer’s block,

It feels like you have hit against a rock;

The mind freezes and there are no thoughts to scatter,

Nothing but blankness echoing in the grey matter;

_

You may sometimes vaguely come up with a topic,

But it may sound like a rusting box in the attic;

Or there may be times when incessantly the mind chatters,

But there is nothing to write that really matters;

_

So, Off and On the psyche plays a daze,

And your wit goes around in a maze;

There is no humour in your joke,

And  there is no logic that you can provoke.

_

You grope for words and they no longer rhyme

The time just passes as you hear the clock chime;

You think of ‘this’ and ‘that’ and ‘something’

And end up saying ‘ that thing’ for maybe everything!

_

The words tirelessly tend to congeal

And there is no way you can easily heal;

But to just go through the vacant bout

And let the block thaw itself out!

Phew!!
