I Can't Write A Poem

I can't write a poem,
My hands won't dare touch,
That clean sheet of paper,
Standing in front of my completely blanked out mind,
With its blue and red stripes zooming across,
Around,
And up and down the page,
Causing my fragile head to spin,
Triggering me to fall off my chair,
And shake my head out of disorientation,
Right when I pick my butt back up off the floor,
While I sit back in that stupid chair,
That caused me to fall,
And then I look at that piece of paper that was once empty,
When I realize that it is full of silver scribbles about how,
I can't write a poem

LOVELY!!! You are absolutely right! It's a total contrast to my poem "Don't stop writing", but I believe yours is way better. :D Keep it up. ^_^

This was really cute! I think one thing I would work on is word choice! Other than that, that was really cute, and fun to read! :)

I think you can write a poem and you are so good, I think you should be published and I thought it was just fantastic!
