Writer's block is the worst! I've done nothing on my current work in progress all weekend and I'm driving myself mad trying to figure out what comes next - at least I've written something now :)
As always, any feedback is super helpful.

FREE WRITING

11
i sit at my desk
fingers poised over the keyboard
and stare at a blank screen

i type a single word 
the
and delete it again

it's not right
or maybe it is
i write it out again

then delete it

the problem isn't what i 
want to say
the problem is i can't say it 

there are so many thoughts
feelings and emotions 
tangled up inside

and i don't know how to get them out
i tried everything
but nothing works

there are no words 

their meaning gets stuck under my fingers
like sweet honey
clinging to the spoon

my brain and my fingers won't connect
the dots
and get something on the page

so i sit 
at my desk
and stare at the empty screen

for a while

nothing makes sense
i'm driving myself crazy
i'll try again in an hour, maybe.
lowercase intentional :)

    This is relatable! the past few days I have wanted to write a piece on a particular subject but every time I try what I write is not how I feel.

    I love the lines “like sweet honey / clinging to the spoon”. I think they illustrate your message really vividly :)
