What do you write when you have nothing to write about?

When the words simply can’t flow–

and when you think that there is something


that you want to say

but simply don’t know what it is.

And you wonder exactly

what that thing was.

It plagues you.

You ponder nothing.

And finally you surrender

and write about nothing.

    I know exactly how you feel. I tried to write earlier. It only resulted in me staring at the computer screen with my mouth open…

    Thanks. That makes me feel a bit better. It’s actually not really novel trouble that I’m having… more like just expressing myself right now. Which I hate cause normally I’m able to express my self really well… sigh. And now I’m just blubbering which I am very prone to doing lately 😛

    *hugs* You’ll figure it out.

    I’m not really feeling depressed, Q. It’s just that I wanted to be able to write something at the time. But I talked with a few friends last night and that helped tremendously.

    Well, whatever it is, you’ll still figure it out, and I’ll still give you hugs. By the way, I really like the last line in the context of the poem.

    I like the image of surrendering.

    I like how people like 10 second poems 😛

    Oh, yeah, I could tell. Tee hee.

  • 9. Danielle  |  January 9, 2009 at 11:24 pm

    Uh, yeah. It’s not exactly Shakespeare 😛 I could probably improve it quite a bit but I don’t really want to 😉

    Oh, oops, sorry about that! I was logged in to WordPress when I posted that. Whoops. 😉
