I stare at the paper and think
I cannot put anything into ink
My pen refuses to write
What filled it with such spite?

No profound thoughts I scribe
My imagination needs a bribe!
Maybe reading an interesting book
Or turn to the window and take a good look

Nothing is coming to my empty mind
My brain, it must be entwined!
For no thoughts of inspiration come
Nothing at all, I am going numb!

I try to force my pen to write
About a topic that is rather trite
A story of a beautiful dove
With no meter to speak of

The rhyming done quite horrible
And the structure is just frightful
This poem is a terrible crock
But at least I conquered my writer's block!

very honest poem, although you suffer writers block, you still have managed to write a decent piece of work. Nice!!

wow good job!!!!  

The rhyming done quite horrible
And the structure is just frightful
This poem is a terrible crock
But at least I conquered my writer's block!

 ~*Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, and ends with a tear*~
