Unstuck

Sometimes the words are stuck

Only the alphabet

A new poem is hard

Because I can't feel

Causing frustration


Then I hear it

"You got this. You can always write. Just sit and do it."


What voice do you hear that encourages you, your mom, a lover, God?


I hear a voice

The crane on my arm

The Muse


And so I write,

Not always well,

Deciding the letters

Efflorescence of emotion

Figuring my place


Have a positive voice in your head, one that urges you on

Your biggest fan

Your ride or die

Your constant companion

The anxiety makes the stomach flip The depression makes the limbs heavy The tug and pull Is overwhelming and nauseating Gags Short breaths Teeth chattering Big sighs as tears roll down
