Everything's Gone

Everything's Gone

I am staring at a blank screen 
And it feels strange

It's like looking down a well without water 
And I'm standing here holding a bucket 
Waiting to be filled. 

The well has run dry
And I despair at its depth

Inspiration once spewed forth 
Like a well spring 
And the words flowed freely

But the moment I feel thirst 
There isn’t a drop to be found

Like water held in cupped hands
Held gently there is enough to drink
Held too tightly and it slips between fingers

Until absolutely 
Everything's gone
