Writer’s block is the worst.

I want to write garbage, but I can’t

because I know I’m better than that.

And anything else just hurts,

like it’s physically impossible for any other word to end up on the page.

And it leaves me in some kind of inverse rage

where I’m not exactly mad that I can’t write anything

because I know I can because I’ve done it before

I’ll just have to wait some more before I can do it again.

But how long will that take?

A few minutes? an hour? a day? a week? a month?

When I have a paper due in a fortnight

I don’t think it’s right for my mind to shut down.

But I guess that’s just where I am right now

so if you have any suggestions, please let me know.
