Alien Ink

Words, stuck in my head
Hands, can’t get them out
Voices needing to be heard
Pens devoid of ink
Locked in, no out

Letters in a rainbow
Dancing in the clouds
Here and there
Separate,
Unaligned

Phrases,
In halves and quarters
Seemingly without meaning
Scary nonsense
Every writer’s nightmare

    You only learn to write by writing; but it comes with its discouragement. Hardly does a writer feel worthy

      That’s so true, and when people say good stuff about your work, you wonder what they are talking about. I guess it keeps us humble.
