Poetry: “Story Block”

Happy Halloween! And on this spooky day I present a poem of something that really scares me, especially with NaNo starting at midnight tonight. (Wish me luck!)

***~***~***~***

Story Block

 

To lose my connection,

With the characters in my head.

It is a cruel thing indeed.

It makes me shake and shiver.

 

A writers block is easier,

Because it completely stops the words.

But to just lose sight of this one thing,

This one aspect, that is worse.

 

I still have the ability,

To form sentences and words.

But when I delve into my stories,

I find myself shut out.

 

It’s like my characters have rebelled,

They don’t want to speak to me.

Now they’ve left me all forlorn,

They’ve left me out in the cold.

 

I pound at the door they’ve shut,

I beg them to open up.

Though my fists are raw and bloody,

They still ignore my cries.

 

So on the other side I sit,

Sobbing and distraught.

Because with those stories lost to me,

I am only half a writer.

 

I can only pray that they’ll be kind,

That eventually they’ll give up.

That they’ll forgive me for my slight,

And then my stories will return.
