Through the Days of Writer's Block

Dastardly days,
In which my pen will not write!
The silence within blank words,
The canvas is white.

My hands tremble over the keyboard
As they stretch over keys,
Tapping silently,
For writing’s no ease.

The writer’s block within me
Frustrates every thought
That passes through my head,
Though everything I jot.

For every moment I stand,
I cry inside.
No words will come out
For in my brain they are tied.

So I cry out in frustration!
I do not need you, my pen!
But I cannot let go of the words,
That cycle my den.

I am stuck in a perpetual writer's block.

Thanks! But to get out of writer's block, I usually write about writer's block. I get so bored of it that I push myself to get past it.

Wow, this is really good! Really really good!  I am a writer to, so I know exactly how that feels.


Just to get you out of a writers block, open another document, and just start writing a story, however random it is. Just write whatever you want! After a while you will be able to come up with an idea to get over the writers block.
