Not as Easy As it Seems

November 5, 2008
By Sophie Morgando, Tonopah, NV

Sitting on the rug
Inspiration waning
Forcing heavy words on delicate paper
Half finished phrases
fly through my head
Curses and praises
Voices of the dead
Pencil shaking
Toe tapping
I cannot with all my strength
Make the poetry come out
You make it look so easy
