lend a hand?

I want to write. I want to get onto page the stories that form and the poems that scream to be heard, I want to articulate the feelings I feel and the thoughts that consume me like the horizon does the sun, I want you to understand what I’m trying to say but,

The words get lost as my fingers touch the keyboard. They’re screaming to be heard, to be read but the second I’m ready to pour onto the page,

It’s like sugar dissolving on your tongue, or like wind carried off on a leaf,

The second you go to grab it, to hold it,

It’s gone.

And it frustrates more than I can express to you. To know what I want to say, to know how I want to make you feel but to be so unable to do so.

But that’s what being human is, isn’t it?

The petty frustrations, the little annoyances, the tiny hindrances, blocking us from doing what we wanted to.


So, to my followers and/or readers I’m going to ask for a favour.

Please give me a word or a phrase or an idea to write on. Or give me a story to create.

Please, I want to write the way I know I can but without inspiration,

It’s like trying to catch that leaf in a gale.


I hope you can give me a hand,

Love, Hea xx

i’m a 15 year old girl who loves nothing more than putting a pen to paper. there's something beautiful about manipulating the English language to provoke an emotion, and it's what I love to do. if you have anything to say about my blog then I'd love you to.

  1. I love it that you can write a piece about not being able to write a piece!!! Only a true writer can do that!! How about taking yourself mentally to your ‘happy place’ (we all have one!) and see if you find inspiration there??!! Keep writing !!! Xx


  2. I love that one LaLa. How about how the world seems to little Mila having been snatched from her cosy womb/nursery as a very tiny person (2lbs 15oz) and now after 5 months being a pretty big girl at a12lbs. But what has she seen happening in those 5 months – her little mind has seen her loving parents and all sorts of weird relations coming to worship! Maybe too ethereal but unusual? tons of love Gaggyxx
