writer's block

clumsily,
lumbering around words
and phrases
and tripping guiltily over metaphors
trying so hard
to trick my brain
into slipping something intangible
in between the words.
trying to "just write"
all the while
thinking about a thousand other things
and still being painfully aware
that it never is "just" writing
its always about trying
trying too hard.

  1. Beautifully written. Odd, but sometimes it's like fishing, we try one place or another, and then all at once, something bites and away we go. Blah. That's not it at all, but how else to explain it.

    You write beautifully!
