I can't sleep.
Reality is a nightmare I can't escape.

I can't eat.
Food lost its flavor long ago.

I can't think.
Voices are too loud.

I can't breathe.
Air became toxic.

I can't live.
Life is no longer possible.
I can't do anything.

I think it's true for anyone who has an art DNA gene. For me, it's drawing or painting. When I'm unable to transfer what's in my head to the paper in front of me, I can't seem to get anything done until I get it just right. I think your poem is something all artists can relate to. With that being said, "Well said," my friend! :)

When I can't write, I can't do anything else, either. It's a strange feeling, but a well-known one.

It's weird- for me, whenever I feel like that which is pretty often actually, the only thing I want to do is write. I'll get it into my head that I can't do it, I can't do anything, what the hell is wrong with everything, and then I'll write about it and notice it's all I have.

From the spread of your gallery, it seems like you can write very well, but if nothing else you can spend a little time dolling up to enjoy being extra gorgeous ;3

Wrong it's. "Food lost its flavor." Not "it is."

It is acceptable as a belonging apostrophe, which it is intended to be in this case

Actually, no. The possessive form of "it" is "its", without an apostrophe. If you use one, even if you didn't intend to, it becomes the contraction for "it is". It's confusing... English is such a weird language!

I do agree, English is a very weird language particularly when written, things that appear the same don't always have to mean the same thing. That's why I said "acceptable", you wouldn't make the assumption of "it is" in this context, it's understandable if not grammatically correct. A lesson I learned from Lewis Carroll and others long ago, "When it comes to poetry you can use any words you like, as long as people know what you mean." context is everything.

Hi. Spanish. Our languaje has a word for every single meaning, and not like english that a word could mean a thousand one. Imagine my face when trying to learn such a languaje. It's mostly like FFFUUUUU-!!!

Oh, I bet. :( I have a lot of respect for those who try to learn English. A lot of native speakers take it for granted, but it's one of the most difficult languages on the planet!
