She writes..... erases.
She types..... backspaces

Words don't come like they used to
Litterature is a language she once spoke fluently.
And now she has forgotten,
Forgotten the freedom and the beauty
In which she used to find at the tip of a pencil.
Forgotten the pride she acheived after each poem.
Words were like open doors, letting the pain free.
Now it's only bottled up, tangled in a huge knot.
It's not like she hasn't tried opening the bottle.
She has, many times in fact.
Failing to write a single word.
She starts with a blank page and gives up with a blank page.
Soon enough it will flow out like a waterfall
And it will hit her hard and fast. Throwing her to the ground
Her paper will be drowning with words.
Not the beautiful ones that could sing someone to sleep
No. Words like screams that could wake the dead.

true words are fickle and taunt us. always just out of our reach until we lose our selves in either hatred rage or sorrow then they flood in like water behind a dam pushing us past are breaking point and leaving only destruction in our weak.

This poem is an excellent example of the struggle of what we writers struggle with on a day to day basis. MissLaurelle has proven herself as a promising young writer. Not only has she the heart to write but she also has the much desired talent.

I look forward to more of her writings in the future:iconso-awesomeplz:

I like the way you did that...that kind of feeling you show in your poetries I just love to read in poems and other literatures..

The way you described the empty feeling ...when someone just lost the ability to so perfect.....and words really are like doors ...letting the pain free and all others feelings that we keep inside us...and of course much more we live...more pain we have inside us....

keep the good work...

I deeply admire the depth of honesty in this one, Miss Laurelle :) And I understand. I can go weeks, months without writing something new. Sometimes because the ideas aren't there and complete, sometimes because I just don't like what I have to say. But if it's in the heart to be put out to the world, I will. Just because it's unpleasant to write doesn't make it any less valuable. And in a lot of cases, when I'm hurting or angry, or when it's hard to get out what I'm feeling / going through... those are the times when I NEED to do it most, and when I have felt most satisfaction when I finally did. Even words like screams that could wake the dead, are sometimes exactly what needs to be said :hug: - Matt

Wow, love it. Like your other one, it has a way about it that I'm just noticing, but I can't put my finger on it. If I had any grander word than, "talent", I would use it, or if I could describe the smooth sort of flow in a word, I'd try that too. I really think I could learn something from your writing.
