Why?

I cannot find the words I need
The words, they will not sing

They won’t line up in pattern’d rhyme
They won’t do any …way
I wish or anywhere I want

Why, when I need the words the most
To fill a voided space
Do words withhold their magic from me;
Withhold their usu’l grace?

    Perhaps you’ve got your tongue in your eye, so you can’t see what you’re saying. 🙂

    Perfectly good questions. I wish I had some answers.

    Some days words won’t fly,
    So then you can but try,
    Digging deeper, trying harder
    But all you get is- Nada.

    A clever description of a writer’s frustration sometimes.

    I may not be the best with a pen, but I’m great with a magic eraser.

    So sorry the words are stuck, Chelsea. But writing about not being to write is a good start. Who knows what you’ll shake loose. ❤ Hugs.

    ahh I can help you here: the trick is to have a glass of wine, sip it slowly, concentrate on the taste sensation, and relax — and if that doesn’t work, have another glass 🙂 but that’s it ! The mind will provide the words when it’s ready, sometimes in sleep 🙂 but you needn’t worry too much, Chelsea: you’re pretty eloquent !

      🙂 I don’t drink wine but will try a slow, tast-concentrating sip of water. 😀

      Thank you for the compliment, John.
