My Hidden Words

Sometimes, there’s nothing to write about
And the only thing that gives you any inspiration
Is the blank page in front of you,
Waiting to be let out

Waiting to be painted, decorated
Perfected with your own words
Waiting to be alliterated
And to have purpose

Waiting for something to happen.
In your own life
That makes you want to write
About all your strife

A simple thought
A perfect design
The words that I’ve sought
I know that they’re mine

They’re mine alone
By themselves on this page
Adorned and bedecked
With my thoughts of rage…

yep, yep, i understand its hard to write sometimes because you feel you've already written anything and everything you could write about. sometimes i just listen to music while sitting in front of my tons of notebooks, than hear a verse i really liked and write....

IMPRESSED!!!!  I loved it :D I could totally relate.  I'm glad you wrote this :D It is completely original and unique and I'm so glad I know others are out there :)  I wish I would've thought about this...Writing about having nothing to write about.  i think you have done an amazing job at making something so simple scream to be read.  Good job! KEEP IT UP!!!

Yours truly,

Alexandra

I feel the same problem this poem discusses often. when you feel the need to write and nothing comes to mind. I have also wrote poems about having nothing to say. great job

I love both the topic and rhythm of this poem. I envy those who can rhyme so smoothly.
