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.


The author's comments:
Don't we all hate it when our literary minds are blank; blank to the point where we feel like slitting our wrists? This poem is for those who often feel empty; those for whom need a little guidance when it comes to writing. xo,
Liz

"My role in society, or any artist's or poet's role, is to try and express what we all feel. Not to tell people how to feel. Not as a preacher, not as a leader, but as a reflection of us all."

This is really unique. I love it!

Would you please comment/rate my work? I need more feedback as well. I'll continue rating your great work. Job well done on the pieces I've seen so far!

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 feedback....no 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!!
