I’m restless… I want to write!
I pick up my pen,I pick up my paper
But there are no words!
Everything is in disarray.
Where have the words flown to?
Why can’t I write?
What’s happening to me?
I’m losing it!
Nothing seems to be working
No muse is effective
Everything is muddled up in my head
It’s like this: I scream, I write a little
I scream some more and then I tear up the paper
It’s exhausting! I’m exhausted!!
