I know….

I know I want to write. I know I need to write.

Something. Anything.

I feel it screaming at me to let it out.

The blank screen stares at me. Mocks me. Reminds me that I don’t write.

Reminds me the words inside are fleeting and meaningless.

Haunts me with the nothingness in my brain.

So I walk. I walk to jog the thoughts into words.

My walk becomes pointless. Thoughtless. Aimless.

I know what is right. I know what I need to be right.

One thing. Everything.

Squelching the scream inside.

Staring down the oblivion. The absence.

Catching the certain. With uncertainty.

So I sit here and write about nothing. Knowing it is not right.

    There are day’s like this, but this is so well captured that it’s no longer about nothing 🙂

    This nothing was a pretty good something. I understand this feeling…been dealing with it lately. Inspiration is just around the corner. That’s what I keep telling myself. If I can stare at that blank screen long enough…:-)
