Summary

Just thinking about the writer's who are "stuck" (I've been reading a few pieces that seem to be saying that anyway) and I was thinking about how it would feel... wanting to speak thru your work & being "tongue-tied".

She reaches for
Her trusty pen
Oh words, dear words
Bring forth poem's end

Of love, of loss
These all be true
But please I beg
Bring them clear through

My mind is twisted, clouded
Confused
My God
I ask

For you to choose
Words that "speak"
More than define
Words that "say"
As much as rhyme

Bring forth that mystic
Muse of devotion
Bring forth true
My heart's emotion

So that these words may
Be released
From my soul
Into poetic breeze

And if perhaps
They touch but one
Then I shall know
Thy Will be done.
