Walled up

How can you write when words refuse to flow
Inside you hide the things you need to say
There’s nothing on the paper you can show

Ideas can form that others need to know
But there are times the language will not play
How can you write when words refuse to flow

Each page you fail to fill makes problems grow
The colours in your mind are turning grey
There’s nothing on the paper you can show

The seconds pass so maddeningly slow
And carry off the dreams your would convey
How can you write when words refuse to flow

The loftiest ambitions driven low
When inhibitions drive your muse away
There’s nothing on the paper you can show

Your efforts have produced unrisen dough
While friends bake breads to feast on every day
How can you write when words refuse to flow
There’s nothing on the paper you can show
