God! Please Inspire me!


Mind going blank brain fails to fall in line
Lazy thoughts brazen desires frozen emotions
Words fail to flow as pen hovers over the paper
A conflict inside that slips silently into slumber

Days gone that are countless leaving the mind always restless
Seated before the system leaning backwards staring at the monitor
Struggling for themes and ideas for the product called POETRY
Barren and empty is the state of mind as void as the skies up above

Nothing inspires to improvise some theme
Fails to clinch ideas from things seen around
Rain drops and rainbows refusing to rebound
Mind going blank and my brain sliding flank

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
