*Poem* Poet's Block
« on: July 31, 2018, 06:07:53 pm »


For some reason or another
I didnít get around to writing this down yesterday
or the day before that
and the blank page is beginning to annoy me.

In a couple of months I wonít even recognize what it meant to me, or rather: in a couple of months
or weeks even
Iíll believe it served some kind of purpose
back now
when I was too lazy to write
(which I am)
or I was preoccupied with everyday
or I left my notebook back home
Which is why Iím writing something now, even though itís growing late

The need to write is there
though I donít know what I need to write
but as long as it adds up to a predetermined number of words, it doesnít really matter.
I canít write about things that happened today
because the date would be way off
by the time Iíve finished writing

I canít write about anything
if I were to stay true to my ideas
and I probably shouldnít have begun this piece in the first place.
But one could jump to the wrong conclusions
I might begin to believe something was not well
when the page decides to remain blank
Itís stubborn
and intimidating and frightening with all its blankness
But now Iím so far into the page, itís ĒokayĒ for one tonight

I can't write about the futility of life
because that wouldnít be true
The date is also off
Iím actively looking for excuses
Maybe I was away visiting my parents on that other day
where I didnít get any writing done either
(Itís a looong drive andÖ)
even though the date-stamp has long passed
I can always write how Iím sitting on my bed
dreaming about writing

(Honk! if you love furries)

It sounded weak and forced, sorry.
