Struckout - Writer's Block

from by Tomber Lever



Started as a petty escape
Now it’s a classic excuse to keep my heart beating
I don’t know what for

God I had so much to prove
To fill my life up with “truth”
What a shitty reason to come up empty

Are you empty too?
Does what you used to love resonate a dead air inside of you?

Selfish interests took over
I built a monument to myself
But if it disappeared tomorrow
I’d just build it again

Or could it be benign
That maybe posturing as an artist
Will never help another life

Maybe all’s not lost
If there’s more to this power, well
I’ll find out
If it carves out hope in a worthless place
Then I refuse to give up my selfish reason for being

Could this be a weapon?
Or a part of me?
I’ll never know if I keep my head clear
Get up

Not what I can get out of it
But what it can do
And maybe a little less defined by it

But it could be good
Or I could be wrong
We’ll never know until it’s time
So I write, I write, I write
