Sinister Sightings

I can’t sleep…I can’t dream. What’s wrong with me?
Floating vowels and consonants, keep– attacking me!
There are no voices, there are no screams.
This Writers’ Block sound is deafening.
Now, here is that incredible urge again,
Forcing me without thought by integrating paper and pen.
To rearrange my thoughts or just my paper jots?
It’s a bad way to be. Really? Inspired by all I see?
I get all excited when the words start to flow.
But trying to collect them gets much harder as I go.
Dark circles, head pounds. I’m compromising my Health?
Turn off my mind! It’s time to go Stealth.
But I can’t rest and now, I can see–
That I am truly Haunted– by Poetry.

In 2008, I wokeup with this Poem already in my head.

Poetry, writers block, pen, paper

I wrote a couple of poems about not being able to write. Posted both in this site - Empty Vessel and Letter to a Poet. I quite emphatize because I go through it all the time :)

I feel pretty much like that... poetry is to me also a way to let my wounds breath and heal.
