writer’s block

Like many of you

I have times when my brain is so tired

I no longer know

Where to start.

It’s not that I have run out of words

Or that my impulse to write

Has suddenly, finally

Left me in peace

Or that my feelings do not clamour

To be released somewhere, anywhere.

 

It is just that I am so tired;

Tired for no reason

Tired for many reasons

Tired for reasons that escape me now

But will hit me full-force in the eyes

And throat

Several days later

Finally emerging through my fingertips

As the feelings of someone else.
