The Poet's Block

Thursday, February 27, 2014 , 31 Comments

           
I
There's a lot of chatter
lot of Chatter, outside
chatter that is no longer a voice
Chatter that turned into a gruesome noise
The chatter did not break
the confidence that writer has in rake
so the chatterers didn't stopped,
stooped and pelted stones inside

Rage of the angry mob
Engage in their chatter sob
protested through the glass window
rested their the poet throe
who chose to die a silent death
the poem will speak though
                     
II
drown in the deep slumber
frown, enraging further the infuriated member
The poet turns a deaf ear
what sea of skull chatter-ed
she did not hear
For she had the writer's block
the ideas that usually flock
waiting in their wings, scatter
ideas that became sheer chatter
hitting the poet like moss and boulder
splitting the glass of stupor vision
incision still did not seep
thoughts remain screaming in their skeleton
While, the unsure poet, continued to sleep!

  4. The contrast - that there is a lot of clutter outside and what a poet will end up writing - how a new world will be built - comes nicely through your words.
