Rusty Writing

I am out of practice

my mind is blank

the words are missing

hidden in my brain

I haven’t written

shared my thoughts

without the practice

my flow is dusty

I hear the creaks and crackles

as I grasp for thoughts

search for metaphors

and interesting words

As I  start to write

the hinges loosen

they start to come slowly

a little faster each day

  1. I wish I could write poetry that’s as honest and smart as this. It’s so great and even just using the word “great” feels wrong. It’s more than that but from a fellow sliver, I was just like, YES! This slice is so great to read this morning!
