    Conflict, my man,
    I feel you on that quest for inspiration
    Seeking brief relief thru rhymed revelation
    For me, sometimes it seems like a drug,
    Like sniffing lines of razored coke
    As I inhale deeply,
    Taking a "charge"
    On a lyrical toke
    That will, perhaps, clear my mind
    From this daily grind
    But how can I "let it flow"
    When my brain can't let go
    Of each cornered cobweb
    And my ink runs at low ebb
    With no flood in sight
    Trying to get the write right
    But it with all my mental might
    I can't find a verb to curb
    This "monkey on my back!"
    When balled paper wads stack
    And my vocabulary is still slack
    While like a raving junkie
    I wail and pace the floor
    And just like the poetic fool I am
    I still go back for more.

    Precisely. I love it!

    This struck a chord of compassion, your verbiage concise.

    Thank you, Rick and 1PoetSought!

    Reading Conflict's piece got my juices flowing a little bit.

    I really can relate to writer's block. I've been in a "funk" for a while now.

    The other pieces I've posted are old.

    I feel that this flowback was a perfect complement to Conflict's piece. Well posed poetess!
