Blank Imagination - Poem by Amatulla Mohammadi

Why is it that my fingers are quivering?
trembling slightly as I stare at this blank page in front of me,
I fear to hold this pencil between them
and my mind shakes in dreaded terror,
What should I write?
I lack that wild imagination of mine now,
I suddenly cant remember things,
somehow, I have lost this sequence of thoughts
and logic is a far-away thing;
illuminated in darkness,
my thoughts I try to rearrange,
What should I write?
I quiver in a nervous sweat
and suddenly the temperature seems high
and my mind too stubborn
to think about the things to write.
I know that time is running out
but my head too tense to obey
and I rub my neck, thinking
What should I write, anyway?

    every writer has this issue at many point of their life time, but you are too young to feel this way. Try to get over this syndrome. Good Luck to you.. (Report) Reply
