i’m out of things to write about; feeling empty,
a sense of uselessness, like when i was twenty;
a long time ago, when i felt just like a vacuum,
of little or no consequence; all alone in a room
filled with people, talking, but none listening
to what i say, and all i hear, a distant rumbling,
as i stare into a blank wall, hoping that i could
curl up in a cocoon; and feeling that i should!
 
years have passed since; seasons come and gone,
late in life i found my voice; and i put it down
in rhymes and meter; metaphors and poetic verses,
that, which i feel; all my hopes; but also my purpose
in this sweeping universe, this expansive galaxy,
we call our transient home, our current reality!
 
i wrote about love and friendship, faith and family,
of dreams, fantasies, the afterlife and its mystery;
and emphatically i tried to express myself in words
one understands; with words soothing as songbirds;
words that heal, that chastise not but rather elevate
and edify; they glorify our Maker, never pontificate!
 
sadly, i run out of things to say, the vessel’s empty;
but i hope this situation is fleeting and temporary;
words will flood back in, and once more i’ll write
of sunrise and sunsets, of roses red and lilies white!

I'm sure in no time the words will be flooding back. Like the waves of the sea go out and come back again. I think writing is a part of you , and something you must do. I enjoy reading your unigue poetry, and I enjoy being your friend and fellow poet very much..

Vic your ability to write on the inability to write is as inspiring as it is ironic

I really appreciate your comments Parker. The irony was intentional and I'm glad most readers got that.

Words are all we have and... through your poetry you have placed them in beautiful way.. And I'm sure as you go through time, you will find views, moments and thoughts which you will once again compose into words.. Blended with your essence, though your eyes, for your readers to enjoy.. xxxx

Running on empty? Not to worry, its temporary. Someone who can come up with such a great dialog and put those feelings into words will never lose the thread .

Years ago there was a show on TV called Seinfeld. The premise was that it was a show about "Nothing". I really liked that show. And I thought, why not write about "not having anything to write about"? I love ironies, LOL.

Very relatable for me. Only, I've just started writing a year ago... You are right! I too am finding myself through words. I feel sort of lost now when I can't write. Very nice poem!
