The Writer's Adversary
I imagine it’s like a road block in my head,
A number of police officers asking for identification and registration
I imagine it’s like an interference, a block (if you will),
From one player to the next, choreographing their own play of creation
I imagine it’s like a wooden block
Attired with auctioneer’s who bid their nonsense over mine
I imagine it’s like a block of tickets, or a bundle maybe,
That you may win after spending hours of patiently waiting in line
I imagine it’s like a chopping block
Used to support the smashing of mediocre ideas and to split open bark
I’m certain it’s like a child’s play-thing,
A letter on each side and, of course, alphabetically marked.
It’s like a town resounding in my head with a small shopping base, a section of city, and thousands of empty lots.
Yes, I know it’s something that I’ve grown accustomed to, though it hinders my imagination ad smothers my thoughts.
It’s the most annoying adversary of them all… It’s my lifetime companion whether I like it or not.
But at least I know its loyal, cause however many times I’ve tried to bargain,
It won’t stop.
So I’d like for you to meet
The one and only,
Mr. Writer’s Block.
