there is a poem in my mind
but words are difficult to find
I scrunch my face, I huff and sigh
I roll my eyes and wonder why
the poem that I want to write
is buried deep and out of sight
I try so hard to grasp at it
the words are vague, they do not fit
my mind unfocused, I cannot trust
my thoughts, although I guess I must
I really want to write a verse
but instead I sit and curse
in desperation, I pick some words
they make no sense, it’s quite absurd
the minutes pass, and hours too
but still the lines are scant and few
today this poem will not be writ
instead defeat I do admit
