Out of words

Out of words

It was then I realized I
couldn’t pick up that
pen, express how I
feel. I lost the power to
turn paper into pages
of emotions that could
move hearts. I felt
blank, just like running
out of candle wax,
wich would then turn
off the flame. The art of
carving perfection of
rhymes got lost
somewhere in between
anxiety and worries.
