Blank story

I’d like to write a story

but I don’t know from where to start

should it be anchored in reality

or made up in fantasy

how much should I rely on what exists

and how much should I weave on my own

and how to do when there are too many possibilities

and your heart doesn’t guide you toward one or another

your heart has grown cold permanently to written stories

everything seems too complicated, impossible to accomplish

places and characters cannot be named

characters can’t even be found to lead the story

the world is vast, so vast, but it’s empty

empty as my mind is, and my hands are still

unable to write and draw and imagine

and frustration eats at me until it all becomes blank
