The pen
Onto the sheet
Thoughts are racing
And you are facing
And lines
of words
Words that flow
And you know
That nothing
The gliding
Of the pen
And the overflowing
That fall
out of
your head
And fall onto
The white
You try not
to make the pen
But the sweat
From the
Of your hands
Make the pen
And you

This is great! I too suffer from writer's block occasionally. Check out my poem about Writer's Block, "Ode To My Jester". I would really appreciate it! GREAT JOB!
