This is just to say

The words haven’t
flowed for a while
despite thoughts
swirling in my mind

I’ve tried putting
pen to paper,
tapped aimlessly,
let my mind wander

Forgive me
creativity eludes me
when emotions rule
this is the best I can do

    You captured the essence of attempting to write during a creative dry spell perfectly.
    The flow will come back to you when you least expect it. Have pen and pad ready.

    Life sometimes overrides everything else. :/ Hope it gets better. In fact, it has got better because you’ve produced two poems in one week.
