i can’t write – By: D.e.e.L

i can’t write
the words arent falling
and the walls closing in
characters sapped from my thoughts
drinks refilling too quickly
there is that damn sparrow that keeps reminding me to catch myself
i can’t write
the words won’t come out
i’ve been trying all day
with a keyboard in my lap
a pen in my hand
notebooks bare
it’s not working
it’s never work
i can’t write and the world is lonely
not enough people to ignore
sufficating to breath
by choice
i went out in the sun today and burned
drank iced tea by the gallons
the blazing sun so violent
i can’t write because i had it
it was there
like a memory
i can’t write because i’m lost
i want to write
i need it
but it can’t always be about me
or the characters
it can’t always be just about me
people out there need a laugh
a smile
i’ll break this facade to deliver it
i can’t write because i should be reading
laughing
looking and wanting and chasing endlessly
the sparrow is back
reminding me to catch myself
to catch the words as they begin to fall
i’ll catch them sparrow
all of them
just don’t ever leave again
