Dedicated to all the writers of the world :)

Writers block - in the limbo of thoughts



Just another brick in the wall

Smash it! Crash it!


Writers block. . .

Just another brick in the wall


The wall that consists of


The brick of restriction

The brick of definition

The brick of contention

The brick of imperfection 

The brick of inadequacy

The brick of self - censure


Smash them! Crash them!


Behind a writers block

Your muse is






But remember this


The constriction of the psychical reality

is abolished in the labyrinths of your mind;



 in a state of abeyance

the inspiration is ready

 to be unleashed


Ready to whisper to you

the secrets of life

Ready to take you

to the waterfall of knowledge

and show you what lies

beyond the horizon


Where time and space are endless. . .


The I am is now displayed in the foreground

and the background is grey

The spotlight is focused on I .


Everything is seen as

 in shades of black and white


In thoughts limbo

you become



in the bordering place 



of the joy of existence

because everything

has to be defined and measured


Limbus infantum - children's limbo;

In thoughts limbo the inner child

still dance's bending backwards

and passing under the bar

of unrealistic expectations


As the brain - storm approaches

Like a dark cloud upon your head

be at ease and just feel the healing rain


Take your pen and write

what ever comes in your mind

because the healing rain


Is in the cloud that travelled

beyond the horizon

through the ocean of emotions

through the land of fantasy

through the desert of logic


Allow your intuition to inspire you

nothing is wrong until you say so

Writers block is

just a result of unrealistic expectations

comparing the self with what is not you


Be original

Be you


This is what the world wants to read in your scripts


Tell the world how it feels to be you


You are unique

You are talented


Let the sun shine after the brain storm

Open your mind and see the golden letters

shining in your scripts


Every time someone reads your scripts

you take them in a journey

to worlds not yet to be seen

but ready to be discovered


Writers block

Just another brick in the wall

Smash it!Crash it!

Great poem and it has a nice flow,
I really liked it :)
I like the concept and the description and everything
and it's very inspiring and probably great medication against writing-block! I like it and rate it highly.

You have written of it so well. The image of the brick in a wall is perfect for writer's block. And, then the image of crashing it down to save the muse is dynamic. Very wise and creatively done

nice idea
