Poetic bliss- The Blankness in Her

The page was left blank for a reason.

She didn’t know what to do.

She didn’t know what to write.

Her mind wasn’t in the moment.

She couldn’t think of any characters to create.

There was no love story in her. No story, character, or feeling that resonated within her.

There was just this blankness living inside of her.

It overtook her whole being until there was nothing left of herself.

She wanted to write. She wanted to create this other world that only she can see. She wanted to create loving characters, write about the bond between them.

It wanted her to remain in the cruel and harsh world around her.

It wanted to take her away from what she knew to be her escape.

But she didn’t want that.

There was nothing. Nothing that would help her. No one that wanted to help her.

That blankness in her was vicious. It didn’t play by the same rules as her.
