My pen drips blood onto the paper
The verses that were hiding in my veins
Mixed with the ink become much greater
My wings drop off the heavy chains

The virus leaves my system in my words
And melts into the vapor in the air
I warn you, do not catch my thoughts
I beg you dreamers, please beware

It is contagious and itís hard to cure
And only words can save the ill
So poets, keep your writing pure
And let your poems be your shield

this poem is rather interesting in the fact that it reflects how many of us feel when wanting to write something and nothing comes forth for hours, mabe days on end. but when the words finnally begin to grace the page that is joy and release to the extreme.

If poetry is a reflection of what is in a person's soul, then I am afraid of what is inside of me.

I enjoyed the basis behind this poem...I think of my poetry more as a release than a shiled though as when I wirte, I am wide open for public view

By the word "shield" I mean that only more poetry can protect the poets from a writers block. Thanks for your comments.

I think your piece is excellent in conveying how writer's block feels...heaven knows I struggle with it so much lately. I really love the first stanza. It's quite dramatic and catches the attention well.
