Ink is silent, without wording.

Thoughts on tongues which cannot wag.

Gears are stuck, no longer turning.

Flowing words have caught a snag.

Eyes are glazed, and minds are searching.

Visions have been choked and gagged.

    If that’s how you write when you have a writer’s block you’re amazing :-). That sounded wonderful.
