A better reader than a writer - but aren't we all?
If I like your writing then I will spam read it (sorry about that)

Nothing to write

You ever get that feeling where you can't write?
Where you're desperate for inspiration
And overwhelmed by the brilliance of what you've read
But you're just the tired one
With nothing interesting to say
Like the static on the radio
That comes on when people drive through empty meadow lanes

As if the words decided you don't deserve them
And your mind just melts like soup
When you want to sleep
But the stars are too bright and glaring through the window
"You're just the tired one" they say
As they glance away 
And you focus on some point of darkness
In the unimaginable miles between the two of you

The wind is still
The rain refuses to fall
Your fingers seem too long

You wonder whether words are your home
Or whether you were just a tenant all along

The wind is howling
The rain is frozen in the air
And your fingers seem too short

There's nothing to write about any more

    Wow... I loved that. Impostor syndrome is real in writing.
