The laptop is turned on
Like every other day
Keys are tapped randomly
To forge out words
From the mind’s tangled tale.
Reality falls behind expectations
A well defined plot seems like a bunch of errors
The backspace key is pressed more than any other,
A white screen is left behind every time
While the mind is filled with hues of hopelessness
What a contrast!
The laptop is thrown away
A notebook is brought in,
Some words are scribbled
A few sketches doodled,
Yet all in vain.
Ah, what pain!
Notebook dumped away as well
Bedcovers brought in this time,
Not to write, but to hide in;
Eyes are shut, dreams are seen
And the most unexpected thing happens.
Bedcovers are thrown
Laptop is brought in again,
Notebook as well;
How strange is it that the best things happen
when you expect them the least.
And there we go!
Keys are tapped again,
Notes made as well,
Intentionally this time;
Let’s see what’s made of the tale
That took so much pain.
But oh, alas!
Words stop flowing as suddenly as they began,
Doubts begin to rise, “holes” and “faults” surround,
A fist is clenched, something breaks;
What seemed like a wonderful idea
Turns out to be a bubble.
Ah, what frustration!
