Something to Say

If I could think of something
Important to say
I would say it here
In some clever turn of phrase
An insight
With a sound eloquent and wise
Something to help us understand
What it means
To be human

If I could think of something
Beautiful to write
Those words would go here
Words to touch the heart with a sigh
Passionately descriptive
Painting a scene
To make lovers know
Why they love

If I could think of something
Full of wit and whimsy
It would go right here
Perhaps something
Seussian
About a Scouse mouse in a blouse
A tongue twisting tale
To raise a smile
And elicit a chuckle

But as I stare blankly
At the blank page
It stares back
Taunting
Teasing
Laughing at me, it says,
“Open your eyes.
You’ve just written
Something!”

  1. ha. yes you have…and its better than a fun rhyme…its honest about our hopes and struggles as a writer as well…sometimes i think we try to hard…and in turn over do it…or make it into something more than it needs to be…write on..

  2. Yes, you did ~ The muse is a funny thing, and I can empathize when it is not showing up, where we wanted to ~ Thanks for linking up with D’verse ~

    • Thank you, Grace. Sometimes it’s best to just stop thinking so hard and let the poem write itself. 🙂

  3. How many times i felt that… a thought, an emotion, something that is just there but you can’t find the proper words to write it down. So frustrating and still worthy trying.

    Thanks David,
    Sentimental
