Ink Contest Entry

April 25, 2018
By Anonymous

I sit here, quietly tapping on my paper with a dab of ink,

So I begin to sit, contemplate: Am I allowed to even think?
I start to evaluate my situation, which I now realize did, in fact, stink;
And I soon come the conclusion that I may as well be on the brink.
I try my hardest to slip the smallest wink,
But sadly, my other eyes closes shut too, as if in sync.
The moment is intruded as I hear a light “clink!”
And I turn my head over, only to see a spink!
Ah, a wonderful creature it were-
So, I guess, I’ll wait another day to allow my thoughts to stirr.

Everyone gets writer's block. We force ourselves to crank out a written piece, though there are times where it's better to just de-stress and take a break.
