Writer’s Block ~ NaPoWriMo #28

Writer’s Block

blame it on the muse when every syllable
is out of sync and rhymes are…hey, what
rhymes with purple? anybody?…ANYBODY?!
when nothing feels inspiring, and prompts
are falling flat; you know what I’m talking
about; you make it look so easy, perfection,
just like that; there are days when I hesitate
to call myself a poet, I’m an impostor and I
know it, head swimming with words, it’s
absurd I let it get to me, a word is just a rose,
oh I suppose there’s nothing left to do but
walk it off; i’ll chalk it up to my imaginary
friend, I hate it when her voice is silent


For NaPoWriMo 2019 Prompt #28: try your hand at a meta-poem. (A poem about poetry, a poem that is somehow aware of itself as a thing made of letters and words.)
