I write what I feel…

Brain Freeze


Brain Freeze

The white screen stares back
Willing me to type a song;
For me to sing along
But the words won’t come.

No brainwaves or inspiration,
Conscious thought, or revelation;
Might as well be brain dead,
With nothing in my empty head.

My muse has gone, deserted me,
Left me alone in my dire need
To struggle along
As best I can without a song.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. Oh dear, hope it passes and the sunshine thaws it, bringing you lots of happy inspiration.


  2. hehe. you make it sound poetic though…give it time…there are days….i usually sotck up a bit for when this time comes, but then again some of my favs came out of desperation…


    • That’s exactly what happened to me, Brian. I used to keep +- 7 in reserve for dry days or for a day’s break, but they gradually dwindled down to 3, then 2 and now 1. But now I’m buiding up again, lol.


  3. LOL, I am laughing at your comment to Brian…oh my…how I can identify with that….I usually stock up but it dries out wayyyyyyyy to quick!!! You have done it justice though Adee…well done!!


    • Teeheehee, Amanda, I know, they just seem to get used up so quickly… But it is true that some good work does come out of desperation LOL! …sometimes… Thanks so much Amanda!!!


  4. Yikes! At least I’m in good company then!
    Will mail you the sneak preview photos of the new offices later this evening.


  5. Lol 😀 Very witty and brilliant. You really captured it 🙂


  6. You have been busy writing some pretty cool stuff. I love the way you express yourself. 😎 Keep your talent flying high. Have fun with your writing.


  7. Thanks for sending this link to me! Fun! As you can see, I’ve been there and done that. It seems, however, that whenever either one of has brain freeeze, we are both able to write something. I can go on and on about nothing, as a matter of fact. You at least brought some cogency to your post! Love it!


    • Hahaha, Paula, you don’t know how often that happens to me… but it’s nice to know that others also have this ‘struggle’, NO, ‘challenge’. Thanks so much! 😆
