Carving Writer’s Block


Coarse sandpaper thoughts
Rub raw within the confines–
Desert of my mind.

      Thank you–I’m glad to see so many different interpretations; I was thinking more of too many conflicting thoughts that wear and tear on a person, but those could easily be harsh and certainly unpleasant as well 🙂
