    I Lost my ability
    To put it down like I used to
    To write things that would often move you
    And I long to recover from
    this dark cloud that looms
    Over my skill
    I want to feel
    All of the thrills that
    My talent spills into my soul
    I don't want to be
    Considered what's old
    among my peers
    Sitting alone in silent fear that
    the talent is gone
    That I have a voice but no song to sing
    look at the things I carry
    Hoping once more
    That my soul and poetic mind
    Would again marry to
    Make me whole again
    I'm tired of pretending I don't miss it
    I long to walk around late
    At night I realize that
    The only thing I can do is write
    To not long for that which is gone
    Can someone help me before my mind draws a blank
    This can't be the end can it
    I'm stuck here alone just staring at
    this page
    My empty canvas

    Sounds like your soul and poetic mind have not only married, but they're on their honeymoon! I like this because in writing we remembe to just write what we feel at anytime and what we end up with is art.

    Our ability to write is always there, it just goes through phases just like we do. What you composed above is just as artful as ever. Flow on.
