ink won't drip, words won't flow
writer's block has taken over me
no relief, no release
these are the nights
my body takes everything
every pain, every sorrow
felt now
remembered in the morning

"To love is to surpass one's self."

I know this is my second comment, but I can't alliterate how great this is. Usually people comment on my work or I browse around and find an ordinary, cliche, un-daring bunch of writers. But your work speaks with conviction. I can literally feel your passion for this art when I read this. And, believe me, I don't say anything unless I really mean it.

Yeas, I know! It is relatable. But it iant the normal frustration of not bing able to write like you witness in other works on the subject, but there is a small demention of horror that I could sense as I read. That, i think, is a little closer to what I feel. Its like waking up and realizing your arm is dead!
