Writer’s Block

Oh, writer’s block,

How dare you come knock.

 

I look for the words,

But they fly away like birds.

 

I cannot find how to say

All that I wish to convey.

 

It’s all locked inside there, somewhere,

But the key has vanished into thin air.

 

Even to finish this simple phrase,

The words struggle through the haze.

 

So much I want to express,

But today it’s just a jumbled mess.

 

How can I open the door

To let my words flow once more?

 

Why must they insist

On remaining hidden in the mist?

 

If only I could find the key,

That fits only me,

 

Then I could unlock

This damn writer’s block.
