The Blank Screen


I stare at the screen, the cursor blinks
I search for words but my heart sinks

They're obscure and elusive, they dodge they evade
My fingers hold promise but I'm left betrayed

For some it comes easy, for some it comes quick
For me it comes slow, I feel thick as shit

There's no rhyme,  there's no reason, just space and thin air
I look at the screen, I continue to stare

  1. This is so me!! I have a hard time putting my thoughts into words. I have all sorts of ideas for posts but yet I cannot get them done as the words just won't come. Great poem.
