Do you ever get stuck in your writing?  I do.  I’ve taken long breaks from writing simply because I run out of what I feel are original thoughts.  Sometimes, I see the repetitive nature of my language choices and that makes me sad.  The way of our best writers is not paved with boring adjectives and the same stilted word usage.  There are over 170,000 words in the latest Oxford Dictionary.  I would expect them to come to mind more easily than they do, especially when I have a Muse who fills my waking thoughts.  But, that is not the current reason for my lack of flow.  I have too much on my mind.  I need to purge…mentally.  So, I thought I’d write some stream of consciousness writing and see what happens.

Down a slippery slope
Sliding in and out of time
Sinking into an abyss
Falling in love
Rambling words
Stream of Consciousness
Your touch
My need
Today, I worry
Tomorrow, I hold you
Ever in cycle
Ever in desperation
Mine to have
Yours to command
Falling again
Swimming at the bottom
Life so hard
No straight path
Ever hidden and secluded
Around the next corner
My thoughts waver
You take the next curve
I pant, following behind
The vortex awaits
Offer your hand
Save me from the dark
Find the path
Pull me close

  1. Thanks for following our blog (The Female Amor. I’ve looked over your site. You have a very unique style of erotic writing; honest, pure and even vulnerable – it is smooth and welcoming – you have a talent!

    I’m hoping you’ll enjoy our TFI posts. They are designed to push the boundaries of the status quo (something you’re familiar with) of thought and original intent; shattering the images that assign and bind our purpose. Stewart and I hope to plant the seeds of evolution.

    We are new to this venue, but will continue to grow and refine our cyber communication skills and further promote our Ebook. Again, thanks for welcoming us to the neighborhood. I will enjoy peering into your poetic pondering now and again.

  2. This is the first time I’ve ever been stuck. I think I just have too much on my plate right now and I can’t focus. I’m sad about it. I need to clear everything so I can get back to my true love.

    1. I like ramble writing when I’m stuck. It may be garbage that flows out but it eventually gets you unstuck and then new words will come. Overwhelmed is a bad place to write from in my experience. I hope you find your way to getting unstuck.
