#161 of 365 – “blank pages”

“blank pages”

 

my blank pages and screens

are laughing today

 

taunting that I have

no more to say

 

I feel rushed and desperate

and out of breath

 

and the stream

from which my words come feels bereft

 

I sit and I stare

into nagging silence

 

ideas and language

won’t form an alliance

 

but I write in defiance ’cause

there’s always something to tell

 

and damn the blank pages and screens

all to hell

    The devil made me do it! You may want to edit this or delete it entirely!

    a salty young poet name Merle
    strung words on the page like pearls
    but when they ran out
    you could hear her shout
    “Goddammit to hell, screw the world!”

    *hehehe*
