A poem and painting about being brain dead, idle and frustrated due to a lack of motivation and inspiration to create something.

A painting of rust made to look like an abstract painting
"Writer's Block" | Acrylic on panel | 2007

I'm loosing touch

Why is there too much beauty in the world

that I cannot contain?

What are the words

that should be filling my void?

The music that should have been my song?


Afraid of nothing


Now composes my being

There's no substitute for just a while

Those irreplaceable briefs

Suddenly nostalgia is not an option

Not one moment

Scraps idly hanging on cork boards

Portfolios piling

Meaningless scribbles on back pages

Hopeless patches
