Lack Of The Muse
Poem By Jonathan Goldman a.k.a JGthepoet
Lack of the Muse causes turmoil and stress
When words will not come to me, unless
I think hard and long, and seek words to find,
But where are they hiding, and what behind?
My Mind wants to write more poems today,
But my Thoughts and Words have gone away.
Try as I do, my Mind is blank,
And my Brain seems to be as ‘Thick as a plank’.
These Jottings I try into verse form,
The rhymes and scans escape me; it’s not the Norm.
Why must I worry? Why do I wait?
Why must this action, me frustrate?
My Thoughts they do hourly into verse go,
Sometimes they’re fast, often they’re slow.
But I must complete this; I know I must so,
To clear my Mind fully, and back to work go.
