writer’s block, or paralysis.

7 Mar

i could not move fast enough
so now i can’t move at all.
time has grabbed my hands
and squeezed my fingers numb.
the seconds walk past me,
taunting me –
i am rediscovering
something i fear.
someone once told me
your heart could move
your pen.

    OMG! I am so feeling like this. For a couple of weeks now. I can’t seem to write. Thank you for this poem, sis!! I can absolutely feel this. I agree with “jingle” take a walk, watch a movie, dance in the middle of your living room and laugh aloud. Fear will not get the best of us!!

    like a stack
    of flapjacks
    drowning in
    maple syrup.
