Write?
I’d rather not
The thoughts are blocked
The words, are locked
Write?
How do I write?
With no desire
It’s only required
That’s not enough
For writing to flow
Not enough
For the word count to grow
Write?
It isn’t easy
There’s not much I can do
If I don’t even have a clue
Write?
I’d rather not
It’s way too hard
All the feelings are barred
Write?
I’d rather not
Why would I waste my time?
To do something so not sublime
Write?
You know what?
Maybe I’ll give it a try
Write?
Maybe it isn’t as bad as I thought it was?
Write?
You know what?
I’ll try it tonight…
