My scrambled thoughts like jigsaw bits
All scattered, disarrayed,
A tangled mess where nothing fits
My thinkingís stalled; Iíve drained my wits;
Canít pass this brain blockade.

I try to fit a missing piece
And dislocate the rest,
Then as my angst and ire increase
Creative juices quickly cease;
My zeal has lost its zest.

Itís time to find a new pursuit
Iíve had my fill of wordsó
My mindís made up, itís absolute
Iím going to take another route
Leave rhythm to the birds.

I go to bed, my mind at ease
Content I have control
I try to sleep but clicking keys
Invade my dreams with rhymes that tease
And aggravate my soul.

I toss and turn as words abound,
Then click!! The word that fitsó
My feet take flight, donít touch the ground
The keyboard clicks with zest new-foundó
What writer ever quits!

For writerís block thereís no relief
Except the click of keys
And though at times thereís pain and grief
The problem is severe but briefó
A (key)urable disease.

I do love this: it scans well, rhymes well, reads easily and makes the best of sense. Besides, I know of noting like words to desert you all day and throw you out of bed as soon as you relax. Keep writing. God bless you.

This is a charming delight. You make writing poetry look easy and I know it is anything but that. I didn't see the ending coming which is always a delight for me.

Wonderful poem.
Great flow.
Covers topic.
Enjoyable and easy to read.
Well done.

Yes! You describe it so well! And I love the line "What writer ever quits!" When I work and work even in my sleep to create something regularly for the Challenge, it is exhilarating, exhausting, so much fun (when an idea arrives), and so excruciatingly hard and disappointing to have to occasionally surrender. Thank you for your words; and congratulations on making it successfully one more time to the keyboard! Don't ever give up.

My brain seems to work that way for most tasks lately :-{
Cleverly written and a grin generator.
Congratulations on your EC placing.

Congratulations on your EC! Any writer can identify with this poem. Well done!

Congratulations on your 6th place in EC. I love your poem in its rhymes and rhythms and also in its message which is so true. I imagine many others spring out of bed (or rise more slowly in some cases!) to write/type something that has come to mind. Well done!

Congratulations on your EC for this creative piece.
