Pluckier

Thoughts are undulating my palm
Akin to the squashy stream
Staring explicitly at my blankness; they recognise
Before I could respire
I close my eyes
And feel my heart thrashing within, soothing tempo
It takes my fear over
Briskly into my gullet
They say….

Don’t slash the thread that joins you to veracity.
Don’t be afraid of the white sheet
Write down something….

The white sheet being paper? Well, I'm on a perpetual block. :o)
But see, it's the monitor for me. I find that the monitor constrains me a lot. I prefer paper, but it's impractical, now.

I can relate what the subject of this poem. You sometimes want to write but you find it hard to get those words out. But poetry for me is a way of penning our fears and fantasies, those little things than means so much to us.
Keep writing!
Nice blog.
