writers block

It's been a really long time since I've written anything on here - over a month actually. I could list off a million reasons why I have taken this intermission, but I'll dispense with the pretense: I've simply been uninspired. I could also list off a million reasons why I've been uninspired, but I won't.

I think it's mainly because there is so much I want to say, but have no means by which to say any of it. And... I guess I'm not exactly sure what it is that I have to say. I've undergone a recluse from emotional expression, possibly from some sort of overload. It is as if for the past few months I've felt everything so acutely that my brain has taken refuge in numbness.

So I do not know what to say... but for some reason i miss you comes to mind.

That phrase fits like a jigsaw in the scattered pieces of my mind, but it doesn't complete the picture. It just rests atop the wreckage, and makes sense.

you know, I think "I miss you" is one of the most poignant and acutely felt phrases ever. to have lost something, even if you don't know what you've lost, is a deep ache. I miss her. I miss it. I miss him. it hurts. Coldplay's "Warning Sign" comes to mind...

I know you've been uninspired, but I've missed your writing. I'm pretty sure you managed to say more in just a few paragraphs than I have in four weeks worth of blather.

(what I said before about your closing lines still applies. perfection.)

i have been feeling the same way for almost a year. i call it creative constipation.
