A Blank Page

autumn

The need to write.
Fingers hovering over the keyboard.
Nothing comes to mind.
What to write?

Staring at the computer screen.
Did I blink?
Little black spots dancing,
The need to scream.

Blocked! Nothing pops up.
Tired! Sleep invading.
Dozing! Heavy eyelids.
Panic! Words gone.

A blank page, unwritten.
Thinking … thinking,
Searching inspiration,
An empty well, dry.

Noise, distraction.
Loud, magnified.
Quiet, concentrate.
Frustration, no control.

Walk away, shut down.
Don’t push, take a break.
Rest, close your thoughts.
Leave the page blank.
