Writers block: Didactic Poetry.

by Harry

Writers block: Didactic Poetry challenge.

I sit here for what seems an eternity

staring at the blank page in front

i start to think of the absurdity

and make an effort to confront

the inability to put pen to paper

is seems like a lot of labour

words start to form in my head

so on the paper i put them to bed

line after line it forms

the page in front transforms

my mind seems to be preforming

the words and lines are reforming

to write you must make the effort

and endeavour to reach the end

but i hate writing poems that rhyme

because it takes me such a long time.

  1. Best answer to writer’s block there is is to write about it

  2. I can relate to this only too well. Beautiful verses, Harry, about how hard it is to write at times 🙂

  3. loved it! so true… 🙂

  4. My words have all gone to bed Harry but yours havent! This is great. 😊

  5. I enjoyed your poem and can relate a little too well too it. I know that for many, the best cure for writer’s block is to write. What I’ve found works best for me is to back away from the keyboard and do something that frees my brain such as taking a shower, mowing the lawns, etc. Ideas often flow from me in such frequently inconvenient moments and I must capture and drink them up as a man dying of thirst in a blazing desert sun before they disappear back into the barren desert sands of mental distractions.
