since I seem to no longer have the ability to emit any form of creativity, the title of this poem is Writer's Block

A Poem By Erin // 1/24/2011

*A/N* I've been having an infuriating case of writer's block lately, so therefore I had to rant about it. I think that lots of people can relate......

 
 
I’m at a loss for what to write
Looking for something to strike my fancy
Ideas, full and juicy,
Fade away like autumn wind
See, did you read that last line?
SOooooOooo cliché
I’m empty, wordless
My characters run away from me
As if I had the plague!
The plague? Really?
More clichés!......
Jonathan, cooperate!
Stop talking! Hurry up and get to the Elf Kingdom! YOU, Sir, are far too slow! Listen to me! Listen! Psssh, if you don’t want to listen, I’ll…..I’ll…..
Pickalloftheleavesoffofaplantandstomponitalittle!
I’m longing for words to whisper into my ear
How cliché was that sentence? It’s okay, you can tell me.
Tell me what to say!
My only wish is
THAT MY CHARACTERS WOULD LISTEN TO THEIR ULTIMATE RULER AND KING AND OBEY HER EVERY WISH!
Such a simple request, and yet it is not being followed…..
I mean you, Mia.
My brain is suffering
Perhaps it is the strain
OF COMMANDING MY UNGRATEFUL SUBJECTS’ LIVES!!!!
Ahem. Excuse me. That was quite the sneeze.
I’m looking for the right words to describe
MY INDESCRIBABLE FRUSTRATION!
With my words. They are useless, bland.
They taste like sand. ^ I can’t believe that rhymed! CLICHÈ!
Or toilet water.
Which would you prefer, Lillie?
I no longer have meaning
I no longer rule
My characters have apparently overthrown me
Their master and King
They don’t need me, I’m useless.
They can direct their own lives
Allegedly.
I’m at a loss for what to write
Especially now that I’ve written something.

A truly amusing drabble. My favorite part was where you spoke of the characters "overthrowiing you."

Awesome!!!

This is a great poem!!! I REALLY hate writers block, it's the worst! I liked the lines "My characters have apparently overthrown me." and "Fade away like the autumn wind." Job well done.

I getcha, Erin. Don't worry, the block will pass. I've had it many a time. And the poem was...dare I say it?...quite funny! But it also showed your frustration amazingly well.

:D

I was going to tell you which parts were my favorite but I think I'd end up quoting the whole thing! The cliche frustration and the all-caps, and the "Allegedly"... Basically, I was laughing the whole way through.

I empathize with the sentiment of the poem, though it was amusing enough that I laughed my way through it! Bravo.
