This may be the wrong forum, but does anyone know any good poets/poems to read to get out of a writer's block.


It's strange that words are so inadequate. Yet, like the asthmatic struggling for breath, so the lover must struggle for words.
T. S. Eliot

nature's ocean does it for me...a complete break from everyday schedules, phones, tv's... but...if reading poetry works then perhaps try...Pablo Neruda or Mark Strand?

Did you ever read Scott's Marmion?

Sea-
I usually can get out of my writer's block(s) by listening to music,but it just isn't cutting it right now

LeeJ-You know I really love the idea of freedom at it's purest, but alas I'm in a bind with school and friends..I'll check out those authors though, they might work-who knows I'll try anything once.


Essorant- Actually I have read some of his works, but I'm more of a fan of Thoreau/Modernism because Romanticism is a little too...(for the lack of a better word)much.I guess I've never really got into most of that era's poets (minus Poe)

"Oh fickle muse
what have you done
but exhiled me
into your underbelly's
flames...
to sear at my flesh until
it's all burnt to dust"

Thanks for the advice anyway guys..

Look back on your own, that really helps me.

If your afraid of the dark, then why did you come?
