Slippery Slope


My mind is slanted

Any drop of idea

Runs deftly to the edge

A suicidal plunge

Falling and failing

Just a stain

Left far below


One chasing the next

Adhesion perplexed


Becomes master

Random disaster

Nothing sticks

Yet stuck I am


Am I tired

Or uninspired

Have I given

Is cupboard bare

Or am I just

Out of balance

And unaware

    you just need something to catch those drops of ideas.

    when I read this a second time, I almost felt like I was rapping! 🙂

    I actually feel that way often but you are way to proliferate a writer to be too stuck. You make sounding stuck as if your not stuck at all. Hugs and love Brad. ❤️🤗💕Jonikins

      You can tell when I am stuck when the only idea I have to write about is not having any ideas of what to write about. Thanks Jonikins, sending love in return!

    Hard to explain why some days are like that while other times the words seem to flow so easily.

    For what it’s worth, you’re the only person I know who can write a poem about writers block while experiencing it. I don’t see your writing fire ever dying out, my friend. One of those embers will catch the flame again, I’m sure of it. ❤

    I am new to the world of writing. I finally found my peace and comfort.
    Words are beautiful 🌼🌼
