Among Glass Now I Walk

January 17, 2011
From every vulnerable streak painted within me,
I preach among despair,
Emptied of soul and drained of wisdom,
Grieving for the weakest of air.

Placed before a blank page,
I fret not knowing of my talent to write,
Each concoction of literary downpour shall be nothing,
Bland among the poison of fright.

Perhaps my being shall forever be humble,
My existence a novel unknown,
Yet for as long as I breath the pain will keep dragging,
Ripping the the core of my empty soul.

Built upon hope,
I have lost my intention,
Among glass now I walk,
Stranded and shattered,
My life has turned to a solace of matter,
all due to this damn writer's block.

Your poems seem very thought out. Am I right? Very interesting though! I'll just say keep writing! If you get the chance check on my stuff, and please give me feed back! I rarely get feed back on things I write, no matter if at school or here! Thank you for your poems!

beautiful!! and such a great idea to write about having writers block!!!

My favorite lines were:

Perhaps my being shall forever be humble, My existence a novel unknown,Yet for as long as I breath the pain will keep dragging,Ripping the the core of my empty soul.

P.S. Don't stop writing! you are so talented and can go a long way with this gift God has given you! :)

Wow... I absolutely LOVE this poem. Amazing! And the irony of surpassing writers block by writing about it! You can definitely write! You don't need any one elses opinion on whether or not to keep writing, though. If it is something you love and something that makes you happy then don't stop! keep writing chicka!:)

A very interesting concept--beating writers block by writing about writer's block. Totally creative, I dig it.

This is awesome!

So amazing, the flow is gorgeous, the language eloquent, and the imagery and emotions are so alive.

Don't worry, my dear, you most certainly can write, and write you will.

Hi guys,

Being such an "oblivious" or rather "reliant writer," I beg of you to give me matter how cruel or harsh the comment. I need to know whether I should continue writing. I will, however, not take any offense to any constructive critisism or harsh comments!!
