There would come a time in a writer's life, but hopefully not too often, when a curse takes over and hinders us from our very own purpose and passion, that is writing; it's as though we're disabled. That curse is writer's block. Here, I have a poem that I've written comparing a relationship to writer's block. It metaphorically describes a relationship with a notebook and a pen facing the obstacle that is writer's block.
Whether you're a writer experiencing writer's block, or in a relationship facing obstacles, may you be able to overcome that challenge. Meanwhile, here is a poem for you.
willing to soak up all that you may spill.
All scars can be shown, no need to conceal,
or we can even make the time stand still—
savor sweet memories and how they feel.
I would miss the feel of your touch and kiss
that brings raw emotion to flow from you,
such a pleasure that I could not resist,
but miss when there’s blockage between us two.
I long for the time we break from this curse—
a curse that hinders us from what we’re meant.
I'll still be here, though worse may come to worst,
for I am your notebook, you are my pen.
