Lexipro Stole My Poetry

I have no rhythm, can hardly make a rhyme

I sit here staring, just wasting my time

Everything was fine before that little pill

Sooner, rather than later, it was all down hill

Yeah, Lexipro stole my poetry

And I think it embezzled my prose

If and when I will get it back...

Only an empty bottle knows = )~

Author's Notes:
Writer's block

Oh Lexipro I was on it started at ten to Twenty to grabage can lol. I never realized it till I read your poem

but before I was on meds I could write a poem in a flash then came the meds and everything just seemed to be trash. I really like this poem and relate to it cause I was there. Great job

Cindy, I understand the Lexipro.  My daughter takes it.  It has been tough. Good piece.

Cindy - You cannot say you have no rhythm or rhyme after writing this - or that you have writers block:-)

Hi Cindy,
Anytime you can write a poem like this about a little pill emptying your head and giving you writer's block, it is a long way from being empty.  You might be temporarily blocked but it will come back and in full force too I dare say.  I should be so lucky as to have an excuse when it strikes me.  Damon

Cindy -  Interesting Alibi, I hope you don't get arrested for WUI (Writing under the Influence).

hahaha....too cute Cindy. I love it! I'm blocked too with nothing to blame it on but perhaps leading a boring life. You have changed your pic since I've been gone. It's a nice shot of you. hang in there the words will come (said the constipated poet herself :o) ... )

At least you have Lexipro to blame, lol...I just have an empty head!


Glata...checking the medicine cabinet

I enjoyed this, made me smile. My fav lines are the last four.  "Only and empty bottle knows." a week ago i almost finished one L of vodca... not a good idea.


Very well done!

If they could bottle your talent young lady the world would be a richer place for it, writers block I think not, I think your brain is giving your body a well earned rest,take it easy Cindy and your words will remain as sweet as ever~Graham.

 You still  have lovely lady with class and style...
and you do have a beautiful smile....

I don't think its interferring too much.  I do see a rhyme there. 

Comment By: FreeHenry M. on January 15, 2010 01:56:21 PM Report
That bitter pill turns a sharp wit into a dull blade

To cure one malady, a price must be paid

But my dear lady, your poetic talent runs deep

It's not time to throw in the towel or weep

Your talent will resurface again and flourish

As once more your prose will feed our appetites and nourish


Ah Cindy, you're much too talented to let a little pill deplete your poetic reserve. I know that before too long you'll be posting again with your usual style and grace.   Hugs,   Henry

I'm grinning here but not sure if it is 100% appropriate...darn those double edged swords anyway! Cute piece Cindy!

Your honesty and humor are like a summer breeze.  Soon things will change and you can write as you please.

Oh come on.  Your brain isn't in the bottle.
Pretty good poem         Gene

Hi Cindy:  hope you get back to "yourself" poetry wise really soon.


Lady Dragonwyck:  can't rhyme either

Comment By: FreeAndrew on January 15, 2010 12:05:30 PM Report

oh i know of which you speak - to give up one thing to get another - a marvelous job of expression and a keen insight into the mind.  it's good to see more work with your name on it, dearest friend
