I regret!

I think I can’t write anymore
Like how I used to write before
As this becomes recurrent
I fear if it’s going to be permanent

Whenever I sit to think
I feel like my thoughts badly shrink
And when I really try to ink
I stare at the wall and blink

It’s so much complication
Because I find no inspiration
I really unlike this situation
But how can I escape this agitation?

Is anybody there, like me?
My stressful pain can you see?
I myself thought that I am a poet
But oh, I am not and I regret!

  3. Oh my dear! Might I suggest a change of scene? Dive into a novel, let yourself flow in the notes of some music. Go on an adventure, have an experience and if still you feel the same then leave this door shut for a while. If you can’t open it, then it’s not your’s to open for now.

    It will soon beckon you though and the creativity will flow with renewed energy!

    Lovely poem by the way. It expresses the sentiment beautifully without being overdramatic!

  12. No inspiration is an inspiration in itself, Preeths. Just see how you incredibly have penned such a beautiful poem with so much ease, smooth flow and perfect rhyming. Just look at things and people around you. Ideas come from them, mind simply processes and reflects them. You are a brilliant poetess, no doubt about it. All the best for all your endeavours πŸ˜ŠπŸ’πŸ’–

    I just wanna say that whenever u feel so…when ur mind is not giving ideas and your heart starts to believe that this not not where you are good at…trust me just read ur own previous work.πŸ’š Take a break..read ur poems..ur posts and then seeing those masterpiece will get your confidence back.

  16. Ah, my dearest Preeths, you are a poet, please do not worry. You’re poetry is there, still living and loving inside of you, and will come in time. We have all been through these periods, and it will pass. When this happens for me, I step away from the keyboard, or piece of paper, and go for a walk, meditate, watch nature, do anything really other than write or think about writing. Helpful. Much love to you. ❀❀❀ Oh, and I do love your poem! Resonates with us all. ❀❀

  21. Your last line breaks my heart. If you aren’t a poet, who is? You are a gifted word sorceress and that is a well-established fact. Your poems are everything from heartwarming to soothing to motivational to thought-provoking. Regret not for being so talented! πŸ₯Ί You’re just having a phase. A phase of low creative energy, more like a poet’s block. I’m sure you’ll recover from that soon. As soon as inspiration strikes πŸ˜ƒ
    This happens to the best of us, Akka, trust me. Our muse suddenly leaves us πŸ™‚ Kidos to you for being a remarkable poetess! You are amazing! πŸ’–
