My Ink Dried Up

PC Google stock photos

I wished to jot something down
So I took my pen and a slab
In my head juxtapose of thoughts,
My unexpressed emotions rallied
As perceptions fought their way through
My ink dried up leaving my pen thirsty, desperate to write more
Ultimately, my pen kissed the pages
With every stroke a lifeline
Handwriting like a sloppy artwork
My mouth yearned to speak
All that my pen wanted to write
Yet, it couldn’t, my lips refused to open
As I struggled to question
What could have gone wrong?


I rubbed my pen to the right
Then to the left
I rubbed it upwards
Then downwards
I rubbed it some more
But nothing stayed

Deception of ink’s reflection
It is still full or that’s what I felt
No visions, no characters
Just like the movies
the director yelled, cut!
I paused, as I looked down
All that I saw were marks
Of what could have been
A fine print for the history makers


But for those who are hungry for more
Glad I got to pen this down
Before my ink expired.

Love and light from my sides to yours❤💡 and have a pleasant week ahead
