    I can't write...
    My pen has no Ink....
    The flow just won't come out of me...

    I got so much deep down inside...
    But my pen just won't let it glide..
    Cross dhat paper...
    I'm like a Bin and all my trash is within...

    I've tried writing it on paper...
    But it just won't in my favor....
    I've tried typing it up on the screen...
    But the ink just sits there as i countinue to dream...
    About what is running through my mind....
    How can i find the answer to all my mysteries....
    How can i find me....

    I can't write....
    My pen has no Ink...
    The flow just won't come out of me....

    I'm searching for a resolution
    Attached to the conclusions...
    that i have distorted...
    retorted back and forth in my mind...
    I just can't find the answer to all of my mysteries...
    I just can't find me...

    I've been looking at this pen for weeks....
    And my thoughts refuse to come out of me...
    I just wish they would spill themselves on paper...
    Then disappear like vapor....

    I need to release the tension that i have within....
    I need to fly away like the Raven...or the smallest birdie....
    But it just won't come out...
    I've been shaking it...considered braking it....
    And my soul is screaming inside...
    Please let all dhis **** out...
    But my pen refuses to write what its all about....

    I can't write...
    My pen has no ink...
    The flow just won't come out of me....

    N2: Believe me...a Pen-Soul couldn't even help a sista out right now. I know what i wanna say...just won't go down on paper...
    Almost like I can't put it into words...some crazy stuff for me..I do time I suppose...

    Soja: Thanks so much...That means a lot coming from a great poet like yourself... ;)

    Sunshyne: I've tried relaxing..nothing works...its like my writing want nothing to do with whats really going on in my head. I'm trying to wait it out...but patience is virtue that i'm still practicing... Sooner or later...and you guys will be the first to read!!!! :D

    an elastic waist band wrapped around Missy Elliot
    in " i can't stop the rain"

    Thanks Everyone

    PoeticDelight: Now you know you got me over cracking up. Thanks for the compliments:lol:

    Rich: thanks for the scribe...That is some good motivation but I'm still stuck on stupid... it really won't come. It's like I'll right and talk about anything other than what is going on inside me.

    Lister: I hope your paintings come out with abundance of your emotions bringing forth a master piece i may one day see in an art Gallery. :)

    And i do promise..once the flow comes...you all will be the first to read....
