Imagination Lost…!!!


Feelings and  desires
Shaping my thought.
A quest to pen it down,
And  all of a sudden my imagination is lost. 

A lump in my head ,
Growing bigger and bigger.
The  gun is loaded ,
But there’s a glitch in the trigger.

I am helpless,
My heart writhes whilst.
The mind hunts for words,
Together they fight for zilch. 

I write three words,
Cutting two of them next.
With the remaining left,
Outlandish it is, I still wish to finish the text. 

I recall those days,
When my words had much more to it.
The water gurgled, birds chirped
And I could write the whole world in ink. 

Now knowing I will never capture the finale,
I escape the infinite cost.
Converting my travail to trash,
The ink flux ceasefire as my imagination is lost.

ps: This was written 2 years ago and again not because I wanted to write it but because I had to write something which I couldn't finally come up with. Strange are the vents of creativity.I will define it as a moment of creative atyachaar.

Writers block...when you come out of it, you write better

Felt the same way today when I had to end a blog post... But then a good friend helped...

But again.. very well written... cud feel the creative atyachar....

Writer's block perhaps is mass-less...!! You were too graceful even with that lump on your head.

wow-lines for me:

"I am helpless,
My heart writhes whilst.
The mind hunts for words,
Together they fight for zilch."

and the last line made me LOL like crazy ("The ink flux ceasefire as my imagination is lost.") - Seen those pranksters who have big innocent eyes and they say: "Nehein mujhe toh kuch bhi nehein pata"?

One of the most creative writers' block I've ever seen...

For the want of imagination,
A writer is lost.

(That was an impromptu one-liner :P)
