    No pen !!!
    You will not leave my breast pocket
    I don't care if you are next to my heart
    Your ink will not flow today

    I'm not gonna let you write one word
    I know you have something to say
    But not the way I'm feeling
    Not right now
    Not today

    Your slick movement across white paper
    Cannot convince me
    I cannot be inspired
    Not by you
    Not by anyone
    Not even by the art itself
    Which you know I am a slave to

    Sorry Pen
    I've got the poetic blues
    And I can't write about them
    Even you with your skill and beauty
    Will never know the empty pit called my stomach

    No Pen
    Save your ink
    Don't even try
    Don't bet on rescuing me with some cute little rhyme
    Forget about all those clever phrases
    You usually get me with
    No, this time you will lose
    So sorry pen
    I've got the Poetic Blues

    oh but what I love the most about a "poetic blues episode"...is the aftermath when we finally let loose and the pen explodes!!!!!! :)

    the poetic blues can be a very deep thang.... :wink:

    AND THE BLUES AIN'T NECCESSARILY BLUE!

    AND FROM THE BLUES COME SO MANY INSPIRATION.
    THEY PAINT A MANY BACKDROP FOR SO MANY , SEEMINGLY
    BLEAK OF A SITUATION.
    CLEANSE THE UNWANTED AND COME BACK , RESTORED
    AND WITH THE BLUES NO LONGER ON BOARD!!!!
    LOVED THIS ONE TRULY!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!
    PEACE AND PROSPERITY
