Writer's block can seem like living torture...of the water drop kind: a slow methodical drip drip drip of uninspiring, underwhelming ideas.

I am spent
Inspiration evaporated
Into the ether.
My words are refugees
On someone else's
Writing palette.
I awake in cold heat
Begging the question
Is this all I have?
Please just one
Last muffled phrase
For an ignorant world.
Vacant thoughts
Fail to bring me
Resurrection.
And in the morning
Of each wretched day
I feel no rapture.
Here I lay dead
Creative lifeblood pooled
And frozen beneath me.
My muse
Barely cold
To begin the wake.
