Mind Block

Photo by Ann Nekr on
A desire to write, 
Anything at all
Ideas banging on ivory walls, 
At once, eager to escape, 
And then longing to stay
In their home of origin
Words bouncing around my head, 
Over and over again
However hard I try, 
The ink won't spill, 
Not even with all my might
I try to force the thoughts together, 
Hoping they'll form a cohesive metaphor
It's all for naught, 
My mind suffering a drought
Whatever stories I have inside,
Simply refuse to come to life
