Teasing Ideas

Poetry By: absolutelyalice

I wrote this while going through a serious writer's block. See, even writer's block has its purpose!

I lie on my stomach,
the wet snow melting
as it
reaches my hair,
the grey sky
making me frown.
I watch the ideas floating
on top of the deep, black lake,
and I want them - all of them.

They tease me,
telling me to just
grab them.
I reach out,

my fingertips caressing the icy water,
but then

they swim away

leaving a chorus of teasing cackle
ringing in my ears.
