I even tried eating alphabet soup.......

I eat
I drink
I sleep
But just lately
My hunger has gone
My thirst has dispersed
I dream silently in darkness
Pictures in my head
Are like clouds
Drifting through the sky
With nowhere to go
Like an immense fog…
The ink fails to flow
There’s no where to go
I tried eating alphabet soup
But the letters failed to mix
Into worthwhile words
I couldn’t digest
Any letter at best
Even the dictionary did not inspire
My need and desire
To write
So I sit here now
Throwing words on paper
OK computer….
I will be inspired
That a string of word’s will come back to me
Like a raging fire
To satisfy
My need and desire

    wow that’s amazing you wrote it in that short amount of time? that’s incredible! it usually takes me a good day to come up with something lol

  • I love free writing, I just shut my eyes and throw down a few words that come to mind, or a line or two and just ramble on from there…. they don’t always make sense but some of my fav’s have been written that way…

    Your brand of alphabet soup seems to be missing Q and Z. But it tastes rather nice and is so familiar. :-))

Maybe they can be a start or included next time. i love your work above. Anything to help – lol..,.Tony

    I know too well the feeling that the muse has deserted me for greener pastures! But suddenly for no reason at all, the dam breaks and you seem to be unable to keep up with all the words and ideas that come. So have faith, dear Helen – if this is an example of what you do with writer’s block, heaven help us when the dam breaks!! xox

  • Oh I know Lianne, that feeling when all the words come flowing back…sleepless nights and scribbled notes to decipher in the morning…. I just don’t quite know what i’d do with myself if i didn’t have something to write about…. xxx
