    Has anyone ever had a really bad writer's block?I have really good ideas that i would love to write poems about, but I get through about two lines and I lose my idea. I need a way to break my writer's block. If anyone has any suggestions they would be much appreciated.

      I have had really bad block several times. My worst was for about 10 months. Don't force your self to write. If you need ideas, you could always write about your family or pets. If you can only ... more

    Sometimes I get inspired
    I feel colors in my veins
    pulsing in anticipation,
    burning through my skin
    leaking out of pores
    So I let it drip onto a blank page

    Sometimes I get inspired
    I breath in a word
    it buzzes in my lungs for days
    caged by my teeth, fighting with my tongue
    It begins to choke me
    So I cough it onto a blank page

    But sometimes I’m not
    The only thing I feel
    is a weight of expectation
    self imposed and heavy
    pressing down my hands and tongue
    silencing my mind
    so for now
    I’ll just leave the page blank

    Where are my fellow teen poets?Are you still sleeping on bed?wake up and feel the brightness of the day.
    I wish to advise that we do our best to guard our poems with clarity as that will keep us on the writing path. Thank you!

    As an educator, I do encourage all pupils and all students to write poetry. Out of writing poetry, especially for teens, I encourage some pupils and some students to choose to commit themselves to writing poetry willingly with my help.

    Sometimes in life..u need a pill..you know what it's called??..it's called the " hope-pill" ... it's really effective! it can cure u of any pain..it can make you the happiest person!
    But..as we know..all good things come at a cost..so this pill, that's very unusual for an ordinary person, but a routine for a person who knows how to LIVE a life, is a bit hard to obtain.
    You don't get it in the market..nor can anybody gift it to you..you have to search for it on your own, and take the dose according to your wish n capability..
    so I'll tell u how I found my " hope-pill" ...


    I was lost..i didn't know what to do, where to go, what to think... In fact I didn't even know if my life was worth living...Then I resolved to do something for myself.
    On that night in search of some peace, i went to get some fresh air. I felt really nice...

    I mean a dark night it was. But the moon didn't hesitate to fight the darkness! It tried with all its might, and at last brought light! Wow, I wondered how special it would have felt!
    And yes, the stars! ! I have always LOVED stars as they always teach me something unique!
    Yeah so though they knew that the moon was nearer to me than them, they showed up..They told me that if you are capable, you can show your ability from anywhere...
    Then they also showed me the mentality of most us-that we always tend to hesitate to express ourselves in front of someone very superior to us...So consequently most of the stars disappeared because of the powerful brightness that the moon had...Some stars even ran away from the moon, fearing they will get lost...

    But then I saw a star...It was a normal, ordinary star..Just like the others..but there was some magic in it; you know what that magic was?It was the magic of self-belief...it didn't get scared and was standing just next to the moon, because it knew how capable it was.
    I was shocked to see the brightness of that ordinary star even wen it was standing next to the source of such powerful light..
    And then, none of the moon, or the stars, or the aeroplanes that visited the night sky frequently, accepted their defeat against that dark night! They all fought, n that's why they succeeded!
    And the wind...it cant see through the night..But still, it never fails in spreading its magic!

    So all these elements present in the nature..they don't just exist for the sake of existing...They exist so that WE can exist..They are for us..they are always ready to teach us the greatest lessons of life...All we need to do is-observe carefully and listen to those silent words...

    Very nice poem. It's a pity that you won't post your poems on the main site. More people will be able to enjoy your work if you do

    Poetry for teens and students requires more importance in creation and easy to recite and understand meanings.

    warning: it may be a little dark.

    Pain don't increase,
    In vain i ask " may i be released?"
    love come in like a dove
    But please don't come from above.
    I know where I am, but not where I land.
    Please pain... Just refrain.
