Getting it Done

The page is blank and mocking;
I have no words to fill it.
If no idea comes knocking,
It’s not like I can will it.

I’m wiped out and I’m wearied.
The day’s been long and busy;
And if somebody queried,
I would say I’m almost dizzy.

Yet still, I have to finish
And compose my daily rhyme.
My sharpness might diminish
If I take a break in time.

I won’t harbor the illusion
That this poem will be the best,
But upon its near conclusion,
I’ll unwind, relax and rest.

    My comment is not coming easy, your query also mine. But as you know that's how it goes. I think that we'll be fine. Peace. :)

    The feeling that bedevils me as well. Your poetry is simple yet abstract. I will say this a million times. You never stop to mesmerise me. Thanks for sharing. Friend, JM
