For A While
Author: Shiloh


I shall put away my pens
and my tablet in the drawer
and the keys upon the keyboard
will feel my touch no more

I no longer have the feelings
or the urge to finish lines
and the moments passing by me
are just moments out of time

I think the inspiration left me
and the ideas now seem dry
and no longer worth the effort
once seen with my mind's eye

I don't know what's taken place
but it seems to have taken leave
and for a while there'll be no more
e'en though it makes me grieve

I am not sure of what is wrong
as everything seems right
but as of now mine is this vow
for a while I shall not write.

been there

This happens when all seems right.. it's not writers block..when you are so used to writing upon one thing or emotion,, then.. all seems well in your life.. eventually it comes back.. but the emotions are much deeper and more inspiring. .. trust me ..i know..

after all.. i got my writing abilites from you :) Thumb....
