Don't you just hate it when writer's block falls in love with you and won't leave you alone? Haha. This was inspired by a friend's poem, and I hope you enjoy it. Tell me what you think. WordSpeak

When Writer’s Block Fell in Love with Me:

I met her in the least romantic way

She crashed right into me

On that unforgettable day

Her dark, dangerous car into mine

Leaving me—somehow

To pay the fine



From thought—


When I first saw her step into the light

Her eyes seared straight into me

And I could not turn away

So easily

Straight from the scene she drug me


Leaving me with no such thing

But only time

To wonder around

In my head

Leaving me—




Even if she was the most demanding

Out right pouring her poison into me

What was most beyond understanding

She would not leave me alone

At the least



Intruding into my brain

Leaving me—




Then one morning I woke to my surprise

To find myself in her bed, somehow chained

But thankfully still alive

But barely—

For I simply could not take anymore

Of her suffocating affection

I cared not anymore for her



I had had—


Enough was


So while she was away

I broke myself from her lasting jail

When so luckily inspiration made

Made its much need—


Who kept a restraining order




And now I can safely tell—

The tale


Of when writer’s block—



Oh! Fell in love—with me

But inspiration will not last

And she’ll back for her vengeance

One day….

…..Most certainly

I agree I can't stand writer's block. I hate it with a passion. I have it unfortunately with my novel. If I can't figure it out soon. I think I will just get rid of it. It's driving me crazy. Jessica :D

Ugh isn't awfuL? I agree. My remedy to writer's block is to not look at the story at all, but listen to music and watch movies, and work on other stuff, then an idea will come. It's a possibility. And thanks for reviewing so much of my works. I really appreciate it!! :)
