Writer’s Block

No sparks.

No words that make you feel alive.

No gut-wrenching passages that make you fall in love

or hate someone who broke your heart.

Just empty space,

a shaky hand hovering over a blank paper.

Eager fingers typing nonsense onto a computer screen, humming with life.

Falling asleep cast in the light of a screen,

waking up only to find that you held the nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

down too long.

No signs of intelligent life here, folks.

Move along.

This is a writer’s block zone and

nobody’s home.

 

 

A Revelation Like No Other

One day, she opened her eyes

and everything made sense.

The tossing and turning, endless nights spent

battling demons she had no clue

existed.

That’s when she learned,

the monsters weren’t in her closet,

they weren’t under her bed or hiding behind the shower curtain.

They walked among her,

silently lurking,

waiting for just the right moment to

attack.
