#writersblock#blankpagesAny critique would be grateful Thanks!@writersnetwork@miraquill
Is it true what they say? "The pen is mightier than the sword"If that is soThen I'm afraid I've just ran out of inkBefore me is this dainty blank pageJust waiting to be written onWaiting for a story to be toldWaiting for plots to unfoldFor characters to developFor the pen to simply touch the the center of its four cornersHave you ever craved to be touched? To be changedFor your story to be written?Or simply unwritten?Or would you prefer to be rewritten?It is all I want to doIt is all I ever long forFor my emotions at its peakTo unveil something beautiful to meSomething that will put the melodies of a song bird to shame Something that would rival the comforting breeze on a rainy dayI need my inner artist to be evokedI need it to be shaken violentlyLike a stormy weather on a very bad dayRip the rooftop off my jar of essence Burn down the houses of my insecuritiesReawaken my mindRelease my thoughts from the shackles of this plagueAllow me once again to write from my heartAnd fill the void of that blank paper and this pen©neris24

The stillness of night
I closed my eyes, shutting them in tighter and tighter Trying to make my space as dark as it can possibly beThe deafening silence was killing meWhy can't I sleep?All at once everything stopped movingIt was as if time and the world stood stillWhat cataclysmic event took place that the world would stop spinning?My hearing has suddenly become ultra sonicI can hear my neighbours breathingI can hear the pitter and patter of animals scurrying along the rooftopsThe owls are singing a midnight songAnd I'm no longer concerned with blocking out the silenceI want silence but I still want noiseWho can understand stand me? Who can give me what I want? Tossing and turningCrimping and stretchingMoving to all four corners of my bedLooking for comfort but finding distressAnd when I least expectedIn the stillness of this nightSleep came over meThe sandman heard my desperate pleaHe sprinkled gold dust on my eyelids Gave me sleepytime teaThe softest pillow to ever existHe comforted me to sleep©neris24

Have you ever made a mistake and wish so badly to turn back the hands of time. Have you ever heard the phrase, "don't cry over spilled milk". Well those were my thoughts on the night in question. It all started a few weeks ago. I was restocking the shelves at work when he suddenly came up to me, "where can I find the shaving cream?" He said. To which I replied, Isle 4, across from the toiletries. "Thanks" he said and he walked away. My eyes lingered for what seemed like an eternity. His walk was soo confident. I was so mesmorised by his scent that lingered. "Is this what a man smell like?" I asked myself. Mid-thought, i noticed he began to turn around. He was soo quick! It's too late to turn my head now. Like a deer caught in the headlights, all I can do now is widen my eyes and clear my throat. "Think fast Aimee. What's your excuse?" I frantically thought to myself. He paused with his sudden turn then said, "and where can I find the bagels?". I quickly responded with a shiver in my voice, " Isle 1". "Thanks......, I'm sorry, I didn't catch your name" he said while walking back towards me. My heart began to flutter, i felt like I was having a heart attack, an influx of sudden love. "I didn't throw it" I replied. He had the cutest chuckle and the most brilliant smile. "Well I'm throwing mines, my name is Travis" he replied while motioning himself throwing his name. I smiled a little. I had to restrain myself. " My name is Aimee".To be honest, it seemed like the start of a beautiful romantic relationship. In that moment, I was already picturing us telling our grandkids how we got together. I was caught unaware by the nightmare that you really are. It's no wonder a beautiful smile with a lick of mischievous is known as a devilish smile. I can't completely blame you. I ignored that pit in my stomach that told me you were no good. I was infatuated. You caught me and I allowed myself to be engulfed by you. That moment you walked up to me in the parking lot, I should've turned you down for drinks and just go home. But your eyes, they are soo hypnotic. I went dumb. You were my master and I form to your commands. Without a second thought, I got into your vehicle. You took me back to your lodge just beyond the tracks. You looked at me and there it was again, your devilish smile. How did I not notice the abandoned looking cabin you were taking me into? Or that the ride was soo long the sun went down? When you closed that door, I knew it was the end for me. I knew I would never see my mom again. Or finish school. " Let me just call my mom and let her know I'd be late", I said while walking out the door. I pulled my cell phone out but there was no signal. I inched closer to the forest trying to find signal while secretly trying to run away. In the corner of my eyes, I saw you staring at me silently. Slowly you drew your knife from behind your back. You were like a predator. And i was your prey.Our eyes met and it was like a switch flipped in my head. I began running through the forest. I knew if I could reach the tracks I can find my way back into town.It was dark and cold. It didn't know where I was going. I was hungry and scared. I've gotten myself into a really bad situation and I may not survive it. I heard rustling but I don't know where it was coming from. An in an instant, I felt a push which threw me over the edge of a cliff. I fell unconscious. When I woke up. I was disoriented. I felt a throbbing pain in my right leg and arm. When I looked at them I was horrified to find out they were broken. I could see my leg bone sticking out. I screamed as hard as I could for help. Shortly after, a young gentleman came running up to me. He crouched down beside me. Looked me right in the eyes and signaled me to be quiet. He didn't say anything really. He stroked my hair and put his finger over his lips and went "shhh". In the not too far distance, I heard a train coming. I must be close to the tracks. Then I realised, I was on the tracks! I begged and pleaded with the man to save me. He said, "shhhh, wait here while I go get help. I will be right back, just be quiet". I could hear the train getting closer and closer. I looked up and there Travis was, standing over me. It may sound crazy but...I still wait for him in silence but deep down I know that he shall never return.©neris24
You are a dragonFierce, mighty and without fearYou burn anyone that rises up against youYou turn them to ashesOh foul beast, where did you come from?Oh foul beast, how did you get here?You won't listen to reasonCompromise is out of the questionYou kick mercy from your front gatesYou want your gold nowLaid at your door at the foot of the hillYou are a walking incineratorIn the prime of your timeYou are soo arrogant and proudYou don't need anyone You can do it all aloneBut the time for your despair is at handYou are warned of your impending endFor if you are a dragonI will be your slayerI will fight your flamesI won't pay the goldYour end will be my mercy to youI will uncover every layer of your burning exterior I will unseal the gates and free you from the bondage of your own mind and behaviourThey will say, " oh, how the mighty dragon have fallen" At last freedom is now here©neris24
I'm writing to you from the depths of despairMy sorrowful heart is sad you're not hereThe walls are all broken,for you were its strengthNow that you're gone, my happiness endsThese hollowed halls, once filled with loveIlluminated the rooms and ballsFlowers have wilted and brown is the grassMy love for you will always last©neris24
Love in Vain
Do you know what it looks like?Love being in vainHeart wrenching, nose dripping, tears flowing out in the rainGiving all you have, not expecting much in returnGetting less than the bare minimum for the love you worked so hard to earnWhat is love? And what is like?Is infatuation clouding my sight?Why can't i eat? Why can't i sleep?Why does my heart fall with every beat?Why can't I think? Why can't I breathe?Is this love? Or is this defeat?Should i try harder or give up now?I have to be seen or heard somehowIs it in vain? Or is love truly pain?Is this the reason I'm standing out in the rain?©neris24
Come what may, I'll be okay

Around the hollow corridorsAnd gold engraved hallsUp a flight of creaking stairsAnd cobweb ridden wallsAcross a long dark pathwayPaved in shards of broken glassThrough a door with bolted hingesLies an entrance to the pastAround a long molding tableLined with upturned chairsWhere kings and knights once sat beforeBut far gone are those years The dust lies settled thicklyUntouched by times caressAnd nothing living makes a soundA perfect set oppresedAn overwhelming solitudeA silence yet the sameA ghostly touch of harmonyA future that never came.©roseunfolded

This silence does not mean you are alone,and in the tears of pain you are born;Pick up these pieces of heartlift,your soul,wear your scars like warm,cozy blanket and cuddle in the warmth of your soul;Your heart is not broken,but scattered like stars shining bright in this black sky... ©desireddreamer

Let's fall away from love,towards something new.Let's become irrelevant to this world.We can resurrect creationand untether ourselves from the canvases.We will teach timethe meaning of insubordination.Together we will continue to find new ways to tell old stories,because love is just a word,begging to be redefined.Ryan A. Michael
If there is a truth that awaitsBeyond today's gatesMay we see before our timeWhat will flow through our mindFor does the realm of consciousness not growSo that new life can flowThrough the web of existenceEmbrace the soul, travel the distanceUpon the footprints of the pastOf which only few will lastCry for ghosts of faded daysDrink the melancholy, the purple hazeWhy does the past hold us by the throatsWhen to the future our bodies float...Why do we choke on days gone by -When tomorrow lies always to our side...©afterthoughts_lagan
