A BLANK SCREEN


I turned on my computer today
And
My mind is blank
I look into a blank screen
But
Can’t think of what to write
Time is passing by
And I haven’t written anything yet
I can’t blame it on myself
Because
My mind is somewhere else
- Still at home

    MY MIND IS SOMEWHERE ELSE / - STILL AT HOME

    MY MIND IS SOMEWHERE ELSE / - STILL AT HOME

    MY MIND IS SOMEWHERE ELSE / - STILL AT HOME

    Age of refugee and rehabilitation. Throughout the globe perhaps echoing these words......

    MY MIND IS SOMEWHERE ELSE / - STILL AT HOME.........

    Ah yes, those times when you slip into screen saver mode, I remember them well (although, actually, I don't) (Report) Reply

    I have moments like that all the time! Though I'm not sure my mind is always at home, I do not know where it is. (Report) Reply

    This is so true, I can write and write, then my mind goes blank for a long time.
    Time to visit the world for more inspiration. (Report) Reply

    Our minds have to go elsewhere in order to turn that blank canvas into a piece of art...Justine (Report) Reply

My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
