Poetic Paralysis

Writers block has been a constant issue for me for the past 6 or so months.
The odd new piece has been realised but nothing like what I was used to writing.
They say quality matters over quantity and I guess I should be happy to have been able to have written anything of substance at all.

I knew the root of my block but was so consumed by life and it's misfortunes that I didn't spend time freeing myself of this internal bondage.

Then something lovely happened...

A beautiful lady sent me her softly spoken thoughts and feelings and before I knew it my mind started to whirr and I was able to put my soul, once again, on paper.
Hopefully one day soon, with her blessing, I will be able to share these thoughts with you.
I was up till the early hrs this morning.

Today I feel decidedly emotional and distant but I know that is just step one.

So, Missy, I say thank you. Thank you very much.

watching you was the catalyst for revealing myself. i have hidden behind my words for the longest time. you give me courage to speak. slightly louder. so that my thoughts are just about audible. thank you.

Wow... I had no idea that my performance had that kind of an impact...
I'm humbled and excited for what is to come...
Hmmm... Maybe I have to peform a little often and have you come so that soon enough you are sharing the stage with me!
