Oh, Calliope


I have come to write

On this page so white

But the words will not seem to come


And try as I may

To find something to say

It feels like my mind has gone numb


Have I run out

Of things to tout

Have I finally reached some end


Have I said all I can

Now an empty man

With no more fine words to lend


Oh, Calliope

Please return to me

Bring me your nourishing light


For in my heart

There is still a part

Unwilling to give up the fight

    I understand this feeling, my dear. However, I don’t think you have run out of words. I will never believe that you have run out of things to say. It might take longer than you hoped, but I am sure Calliope will return to you! ❤

    i think we all run dry with our words at times, but give them their space and they are sure to return

    I had a moment like this last weekend. My story idea would not flesh out no matter how hard I tried. All the self-doubts swirled and sang of my end, but I took a break and a breathe and went outside. You might need an adventure 🙂
