Writer’s Block: Part Two

What have I to stay that I have not said
Before, at some other time or place? And
How should the ideas, which, in my head,
Keep me awake late at night and demand
So much painful attention, how should they
Be put on paper in such as fashion
As to avoid making a reader say
“This guy is too pretentious”, and challenge,
Instead, one to think. Have I lost my touch?
Have I exhausted all my avenues?
Could I, in nine months, have written too much?
Did I really have a touch I could lose?

I have written sonnets, haikus, free verse.
In just half an hour I’ve written these words.
