"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." Marylin Monroe


The sheer white
paper dares
me to fill
it up with beautiful
words and
stories but
I tell the
paper that
I ran out of
words like a dying
balloon out of
air and the only
words that
I have left are the
ones used to say that the
words are all gone and the
paper mocks
me with its bright
white that
I need to fill up with
beauty

This is about that blank feeling I get when I don't know what to write.

Pretty cool poem! All writers know the pressure of filling that blank, white page with meaningful words.

"there is no such thing as a typical world, for the only 'typical' thing in space is the vast emptiness that encompasses it, and anything else is extremely rare and nothing less than extraordinarily strange and unique"- Paraphrased Carl Sagan quote

Awesome poem! It's kind of what I'm feeling right now, oh and check my profile, you know me ;)
