as artists, we inevitably encounter times of dullness
where we sit alone at our desk, drinking hot coffee and listening to the stillness
how can this happen to me?
if there’s one thing i’m good at, it’s creating
pouring my soul into my pen and feeling refreshed when i finished
but lately, my soul has been stagnant, and any spark has all but diminished
everybody says it’s normal, to experience “creator’s block”
all i want to do is rip the chains from my body and crush the lock
to listen to music and allow the words to just flow
the way they do, when my feelings have no where else to go
this body is far too tiny to hold as much in as i do
my demons fighting to catch my attention, it’s chaos, it would really surprise you
there’s so much that goes on in an artist’s head
we see poetic beauty in everything that exists, the laughs, hardships and all of the words never said
we are unique, powerful and sensitive all at once
we weave together tales of moments that we love to drink up
some are phenomenal rays of light, while others, paint a darker, moody picture
but all are my very own cosmic elixir
when i create, i am raw and real
writing down all of the things my heart always feels
you can find me dancing in an electrifying bliss, contemplating
on all of the wonderful things, i am meant to be creating

“creator’s block” is a very real struggle that we all deal with at one point or another. i’ve been experiencing it lately myself. when i get off of work, i find myself gravitating towards a mundane existence. i put on netflix and clean the apartment, mindlessly going about my evening. i forget to make time for myself to create like i used to, and that’s sad to me. i should always have energy left in the day for this. it is my sanctuary, therapy and happiness. my fingers sometimes cannot type or write fast enough to keep up with the countless words that wander through my head.
when i’m experiencing this dullness, i force myself to get inspired. listening to music, walking in nature or going to my favorite coffee shop always lights a spark in my heart. it’s the little things that inspire me, so i’m always grateful for that.
if you’re going trough this too, just know that it will pass. sometimes you have to sit yourself down and get in the mood. it is always worth it.
