Inspiration

I found some nuggets of inspiration and motivation today that helped me get past some problems I've had lately. Not so much story problems, but just staying focused long enough to get anything written.

And I wanted to post this older poem I wrote on my myspace page, because it's exactly how I've been feeling and felt today when I finally just sat here and worked.

Empty

The thoughts come,
though obscurely
and sometimes not at all.
Lying dormant
until some spark,
or something deeper--
some force driven by a need
to fill the small places
of my imagination--
bleeds onto the page
and the words flow
like water to parched lips.
