m, the line 'blue teenage doubt' doesn't really scan very well. Maybe cut out either 'blue' or 'teenage'. I'd suggest cutting 'teenage' as I always try not to sound like a teenager, but that's just me.

Otherwise, I like this... I like the image of the sky being in a bucket, spilling over. Some lovely imagary.

Advice for writers block... don't worry- it will probably pass with no trouble at all. I had 2 months of writers block, and the first poem I wrote after that won a national competition. So, maybe you just need a bit of a break from writing, some 'you' time. This might give your mind some time to reboot and get the ideas flowing again. Just my advice.

the poem leaves a good effect

Well, writer's block isn't affecting you too bad. I loved the lines:

"But the leaf crumbles and sways to the ground

Like ashes of past memories forming a mound"

Nothing harsh to say, as always it was a joy to read your stuff.

Sorry I can't read more now, but I'm looking forward to doing so in the future.

Keep writing!

Good poem for having writers block. Nice imaging, but sad in the end.

ok this poem has great imagery but there doesnt seem to be a real point... or if there is one I missed (the second thing is more likely)... I love the rhyming but the phrase full of blue teenage doubt just didnt seem right... good poem tho! good luck defeated writers block
