NaPoWriMo Day 14

Barricade

Sometimes you’re just not in the headspace for a poem

You’re tired or stressed and the words just aren’t flowing 

Commitments get piled on and eat up your time

And what should be an outpour morphs into a whine

In ten lines I wish I could describe a smile

In twenty lines recall fine moments as a child

In thirty lines gush at the scent of a woman

But stare into space and the words aren’t coming

Just write about anything

Talk about where you’re going

Just don’t write about how you can’t write a poem
