I know how you feel! I need some inspiration!
Well we’ll see.
Might have some coming,
but if it does
I’ve a feeling it won’t lead to happy poems.
I’m sorry…non-happy poems, while often beautiful, reflect non-happy poets.
You always say that and then you come back with like five great poems.
I have the faith, the force is strong with this one.
Thank you Yoda.
I went over a month without writing a single poem, so I know how it feels. Things are just starting to come back to me. Try just writing, even if it’s gibberish – and I’m sure you’ve been told to try this before – but just write whatever comes to your mind, and oftentimes you’ll find there’s something to be salvaged from it. Many of my ideas for poems are fragments from something bigger and nonsensical.
ALL of my poems come out that way.
Very few are highly worked on.
….I just have to write out all the shit and then the good things will come out.
Or at least, that’s what’s worked in the past
A suggestion is order
In order to deflect the emptier
Describe the feeling of thought anti-matter
And behold, what wonderful filler
