An empty page gives me a thrill
and though
I know
it's there to fill,
I am not sure I will

Welcome to the site! This is a nice poem, especially for someone whose mother tongue is not English. Nice rhythm, nice rhyme.

Thanks for your encouraging comment. Perhaps there might be an advantage to writing in a foreign language, because you can never be as critical at your own work as you would if it was in your mother tongue.
b.t.w. Great idea, this website of yours.

I like the sense of noncommitment this portrays. Just because it's there doesn't mean it needs doing. Or it may be done at a point of your choosing, which means it doesn't rule you. Nice work.

Very concise. Writer's block is a peculiar thing; different for everyone. Thank you for sharing you Writer's block experience :)

This is simply awesome. In so few words you said so much. One of my biggest problems is "overwriting". Great job.

Succinct, articulate and compelling are all words that apply.

I love the thrill of the blank page.
