The Writer Writing

Drowning in thought,
Like he’s lost at sea

Oh the poor writer!
What a horrible way to be.

He’s in some trouble,
Wound up in writer’s block

He needs more words!
He’s running out of stock

Half way down the page now,
With nothing to be found

His finger tapping backspace
Is the one and only sound

Then he realizes something,
See the light bulb above his head

Now the fingers are flying,
Writing dialogue to be said.

Here he arrives at the end
Almost sad to see it done,

This started out quite the bother,
But it actually turned out fun!

I wrote this piece based on the fact that I actually had a case of writer's block! Writing from experience really helps.

I guess you're right that it would be better in quatrains, but I always write in couplets for some reason. It's just what I was taught.

I love it! So simple yet capturing writer's block perfectly. Plus it flows well and the rhyme scheme is great.

One question: Why did you write it in couplets instead of quatrains?

I think it would make more sense with the rhyme scheme.
