INSIDE THE BOX

INSIDE THE BOX

A Poem by M.Babu
"

Think outside Your Box

"


There’s naught but thought

To rescue thee;

From the chains that bind

Creativity.

Deep in your box

Of formless marsh.

There’s a drainage hole 

Big enough to stash.

That beast of sorts,

Who’s had his way.

In your sea of thought,

He left you a

Bay.

Stranded alone

For him to watch.

You struggle and claw

Inside the Box.

well seeing as that piece was quite good, which block dost thou speaketh of?

wonderfully captured! "trapped" is often how one feels when struggling to overcome a creative block. Isn't it odd that one can feel trapped in one's own body? great work, michael!

Oh that wretched block, that thief of thought!
However, tmethinks the block faded to nothingness as you wrote the above incredible lines.
'Deep in your box ~~ Of formless marsh.' .. there's magic here

Heheh, this is something I can really relate to. Writers block is a pain, but only with great struggle can we truly succeed in finding our inspiration, be it from thinking outside the box or from within ourselves. Thought-provoking and creative!
I like this a lot! Great job my friend :)

I am trapped inside the box, needing to be set free. For inside the box is the mind wanting to release the words. Great poem my friend.
