ok you guyz here is my challenge to you ... write something that deals with your experiences with writers block, and if your lucky enough to have not had it yet... write what you think it would be like to you ...

Here's what I have ...

I stare at the
  blank starkness
  of the page, never
  having confronted
  this most feared
  deamon-until now
  a writers worst
  nightmare revealed
  how do I make
  the words flow
  smoothly once again?
  or am I like
  an undiscovered
  star, burnt out
  to become star dust
  no one the wiser
  that it even existed
  I search frantically
  for a cure
  awaiting the sounding
  of the alarm to
  awaken me, reassure
  me that I am
  dreaming, but ...
  nothing
  suddenly my mind
  seems as blank
  as the page
  that I now fill
  with words-
  words that mean
  nothing and everything
  all in one breath

Good luck ... but most of all have funnnn!!!!!

Deep within this poetís forest
Hidden behind Rogetís Thesaurus
Sits a book so innocently
Birthed from some sweet ancient tree

I thank the tree most every night
Its life was given without a fight
As lumberjack with saw in hand
Cut it from some wooded land

The edges worn from poetís fingers
A scent of pine I swear still lingers
Creating poems for passionate times
Thankful for a dictionary that rhymes!

This is something I wrote and posted previously...

Is writing block a mental constipation
giving gaseous grumbling alliteration
No grunting, no groaning will prevail
so I sit here and endure my travail.

Would fibrous words of wooded glen
cause these words to flow again
Chemicals never were my forte
so I sit here, without words to say.

Twiddle my thumbs, rearrange my file
(thank God I am a bibliophile!)
Waiting to feel the signs of release
give me words and give me peace!

I spy on my shelf a dictionary of rhyme
and suddenly, all is fine!
Such a relief! Now I can relax,
I just got a dose of mental ex-lax!
