Writer’s Block

I want to write something new
but my body has forgotten how
the words are hiding with
the sun in the spring
the words are hiding
with my mother in
a vat of self-loathing

I want to write something new
but my mind isn’t in the mood
the words are hiding with
my brother in texas
the words are hiding
with my sister in
her boyfriend's bed

I want to write something new
but the feelings begging to come out
would like it to be in
the form of a scream
the words are hiding
with my father at
his very busy job

I want to write something new
but the need to grow up
is hiding in the past with
my twelve-year-old self
the words are hiding
with a sense of naivety
I lost too long ago
