Unhappy So Close, Yet So Far - January 20th 2022, 01:58 PM

I know this is a really plain and boring poem compared to my other ones. I haven't written a poem in months and I've had awful writer's block. But here's something, I guess. Just another vent.

I can fantasise about a new life all day.
A life filled with adventure,
going outside into the world each day,
seeing and doing things I want,
talking and socialising,
flying high and soaring and reaching new heights.
I plan it, I dream it, I imagine it.
But I don't know if I can bring myself to do it.
Physically and mentally so close,
but with that little hill of motivation to start in the way,
so far out of reach.


i'm sure i'd be okay once i started. but the beginning, the motivating myself to start in the first place, is just so hard. and it stops me from doing all these things i want to do that i know would help. i feel so lazy.


here comes the sun
here comes the sun, bringing you love and shining on everyone
here comes the sun.
here come the raging sun
and it's raging on and so we rage as one on until the day is done.

This isn't plain and boring at all. It puts into words what I, and a lot of other people have felt! I'm glad you got something on paper - you're a really talented writer and I always love reading your work.

I don't think it's plain or boring at all! If anything, it's super relatable to not only me but many others.

Writer's block suck and mental health can cause such a huge disruption in our wanting to write. So definitely take as much time as you need and if something doesn't pop up for another six months, that's perfectly ok!

Thanks for sharing.

This is far from boring! I could really relate to this...it's so easy and wonderful to imagine all the things you'd like to do but horribly annoying when you can't just bring yourself to do them. Thanks for sharing
