Alien Ink

Words, stuck in my head
Hands, can’t get them out
Voices needing to be heard
Pens devoid of ink
Locked in, no out

Letters in a rainbow
Dancing in the clouds
Here and there
Separate,
Unaligned

Phrases,
In halves and quarters
Seemingly without meaning
Scary nonsense
Every writer’s nightmare
