Writer's Block

Thinking of something to write
Staring at my screen, day and night
Waiting for the right idea
But so far, nothing’s clear.

Writing opening lines over and over
Wishing I had a four-leafed clover
Delete the whole thing once more, and then
Repeat the whole cycle again.

Love, hate, dreams of past?
But not one theme, in my head, sticks fast
Turning them over in my mind
Good ideas are hard to find.

Then a thought pops in my head
Write about something else instead
Something that turns my brain to rock
That ‘something’ is Writer’s Block.

 When you're trying to find the right line
Or getting your thoughts to keep in time
But they keep on scrambling out of place
And you know that time's going to waste.

If you're trying to make a decent plan
But can't write it so you understand
And you'd rather not ask for a helping hand
Or leave your writing station unmanned.

Then Writer's Block
Is the thing you've got
And how to get rid of it?
I know not.
