“Writer’s Block” by Ciano


What happened to you?

You used to be so smooth

quick on your feet

and great with words,

you’ve lost your touch.

You used to spit words out

like a faucet did water,

like a dragon did fire,

like a snake does its tongue.

You were unstoppable,

and then you stopped.

You knew what to say

you just didn’t know how to say it.

You were your own enemy,

self-destruction was your term

You put yourself in a box

lit a match and watched it burn.

Now that fire is burning out

and every ash has turned into sand

but like a phoenix you will rise

and your words will reborn again.
