    My soul’s well has run dry
    There is nothing at the bottom but dried, crusted ink
    My pen broken
    My fingers numb
    I can only think
    Internalizing internal things
    Personalizing the most personal
    Yet unable to express expressions

    A phase perhaps
    A time to reflect on reflections of life
    A test of emotional restraint
    Am I smart enough to just think?
    Man enough to admit I am void of inspiration?
    Can’t imagine not writing about imaginations
    What is left for the mind to do
    When the soul isn’t playing its part

    I know better
    I know how everything works
    Mind, heart, body and soul
    Together a beautiful thing
    But three out of the four are tired
    Needing rest
    Needing time and space
    Gone

    We’ll see how smart I really am
    As my mind tries life all alone

    The four essential elements that make us whole do have reserves...but if they become dangerously close to being exhausted, just like all well run systems, one or two will carry the load. If your heart is failing, and your body and spirit are low on fuel, your mind is strong enough, and you are man enough to know when you've had enough. Just give yourself time enough...
    to rest, to think.

    And you are smart enough to know you're never alone.

    I have read your words and felt your flow. I agree with T. If we are lacking in something other systems kick in, but I'm sure you have some soul in reserve, let it flood your well and repair your pen with inspiration,expressions and lots of imagination. And know I'll be here to drink from it.

    Even when he
    Walks
    Alone
    The poet's pen
    Is never broken....
