Poem: Paralysed Thoughts – 03/07/20

I wonder:
Is there such a thing
as paralysis
of creativity?
The centre of
my thoughts that hold
intrinsic meaning,
where fireflies dance
and darkness looms
and fervent flames
of passion can
fill this room.
This room,
which houses techniques
and methods of madness,
has been disabled,
of smooth movements
it simply cannot
slide nor speak.
This is not a lacking
of inspiration
but rather a
hostile sense of
forced contemplation.
And I can sit here
patiently waiting for this
centre to regain fluidity
its natural flow which takes
my left foot, right foot
gently forward
until I reach,
closer you,
but this quiet solitude is disturbing,
so, I shriek,
paralysis now shocked,
returning to life,
stale tastes and thoughts
flow, unwelcome,
ridden of,
from this now-chaotic scene.
