    Just a poem, that was a mixture of thoughts when i had writers block. This is the first poem i wrote.. so.. i’m not sure how good/bad it is.


    I sat still starring at the blank page in front of me.

    A pen in my hand.

    Anticipating to write something Wonderful.

    Something Inspiring.

    Something Beautiful.

    But what?

    I have so much in my mind but outwardly so little.

    But I want to writer, I need to write.

    I gripped the pen harder and put it near the paper.

    I waited.

    And waited.

    And waited for something to come to my mind.

    Something Wonderful.

    Something Inspiring.

    Something Beautiful.



    But all the filled my mind was Fear.

    Fear that it wouldn’t be Wonderful.

    Fear that it wouldn’t be Inspiring.

    Fear that it wouldn’t be Beautiful.

    Fear that even if I poured my time and love into it that it wouldn’t be anything.

    Anything good, Anything worthwhile.

    Anything Wonderful.

    Anything Inspiring.

    Anything Beautiful.

    The only good of it to be crumpled up and thrown away.

    The work the pen and paper helped me with ruined.

    With my hands shaking I closed the pen and sat it down.

    The blank piece of paper blurring as my eyes filled with tears.

    I couldn’t do it.

    I had failed.

    Nothing Wonderful.

    Nothing Inspiring.

    Nothing Beautiful.

    I got up and walked away.

    An empty feeling sank into my stomach.

    I failed being a writer.

    Hm.. you sure? And you arn’t just saying that because i mentioned about it being horrible, and your trying to make me feel better, even if it’s not really true?

    Yeah.. when i wrote it i didn’t know it was a poem, but a yduber friend told me it was a poem. *shrugs* poetry is not really my thing

    Emma Starr

    @katthewriter That was SO cool! I’ve never thought of writing a poem about not being able to write a poem. And the phrasing was so beautiful.

    Keep writing poems, girl!!

    @katthewriter That’s the magic of free verse. 🙂

    Okay, thank you Emma!


    Free verse..? Like i said.. don’t know much about poetry, just try to make it flow right.


    @katthewriter I like it! Nice use of repetition. 🙂

    INFP-A. If you can't be brilliant, odd will do.


    Thank you @kate ! 🙂

    @katthewriter I absolutely am sure; I’m not just saying it to make you feel better. It was waay good, and the repetition and style is super great. 😀
