My Poetical Cortex is Caving In

by V. Blake

finding inspiration
is starting to feel
like licking a stalk of sugarcane
wrapped in razor wire.

and all that bleeds
through the sweetness on my tongue
goes blue with lack of substance
before it even touches earth.

it's like my brain can't tell the difference
between the writing and the writhing.

Indeed, often i think one must writhe before they can write

You already know my thoughts on this. I must say, you captured so much with such a short piece. For that, I commend you sir!

I can't believe I missed this -but of of course, it's hard to keep track of all of your awesomeness...still -late though I may be coming to it, it deserves a comment -it's fantastic and one of the best I've seen of yours!!!
