Writer's Block

Writer's Block

The blank paper,

The flash, flash, flash of the cursor,

As I sit, thinking, working, committing, trying,

Trying to get some spark of an idea, a thought, a brainstorm.

Nothing.

The blank paper,

The flash, flash, flash of the cursor,

Irritation, annoyance, frustration,

Why won't these ideas come to me?

The anger lifts my fist and I strike the wall next to my desk,

This has no effect,

Except on my hand.

The blank paper,

The flash, flash, flash of the cursor,

Writer's Block.
