I waited so patiently for something to say,

   but words just never came;

So I walked each night to find those words

   till the sun went down in flames.

Each morning I woke in hope of peace

   thinking this would be the day,

But each hour passed with no relief

   and night returned with dismay.

As the weeks go by with no real sense

   of the purpose for which I write

I now sit here with keyboard in hand

   forcing the issue this night.

I sense I’m moments away from that joy

   that’s eluded me now for weeks

And when that joy comes I know I’ll smile

   it’s something I desperately seek.

Till then I’ll prose in meaningless banter

   reaching so deep inside me

Putting words together this way and that

   wanting that epiphany!
