A Villanelle About Not Writing

Photo by Hello I'm Nik on Unsplash

There are days when I don’t write. Some days I need a rest. Some days my mind is empty. I always feel I am not good enough even though people continually tell me I am.

So I challenged myself to write a villanelle about not writing.

This is to give me a break from putting together my first book of poetry which I uploaded to Amazon and then pulled because I decided it was only adequate but will probably be on sale by the time this is published.

How twisted is my tiny mind?

Some Days I Just Cannot Write A Word

My Mind Is Empty, An Unfilled Space

If I Do Not Write, I Won’t Be Heard

This Feeling I Know Is So Absurd

I Feel As Though I Am Losing The Race

Ideas Sometimes Need To Be Stirred

Or I Think I’ll Sink Without A Trace

If I Do Not Write, I Won’t Be Heard

Writing About Not Writing, Oh Merde

My Mind on Autopilot Freebase

My Pen Does Leak Tales, I’m Undeterred

Creativity Ain’t Lost In Space

These Are Just Words So Slightly Deferred

Yeah That is Just Me Stating My Case
