Won’t Write Anymore

The tip of my pencil used to break
And I would sharpen it,
The ink of my pen used to dry out
And I would replace it,
The lined sheet of paper used to fill out
And I would grab some more,
But not today,
Not anymore,
Today –
The pencil is sharp,
The ink is not dry,
The lined paper is blank,
But –
Never will I scribble –
A letter,
Or a word,
Or even a sentence,
Or a mind’s paragraph,
Or a heart’s essay,
No,
Never,
The pencil is still sharp,
The ink is still not dry,
The lined paper is still blank.

  1. I really enjoyed this piece. It moves sharply on the tongue and it was sort of demanding, like the narrator decided that he would only write (or not write) for himself. Looking forward to more 🙂
