I Want To Write A Poem

Written by: Lori Hopkins

i want to write a poem

to put my thoughts in pen

but every time i try

writter's block again


i want to write a poem 

one to make you think

but every time it comes to me

i have no paper or ink


i want to write a poem 

but nothing comes to mind

so i'll write down thoughts and dreams

and see what i can find


i want to write a poem

not too dark but not too sappy

just a simple poem 

one to make you happy


i want to write a poem 

but my mind is blank

maybe its from lack of sleep

or something that i drank


i want to write a poem

but i have no clue


i want to write a poem

a poem just for you


i want to write a poem

to tell you how i feel


i want to write a poem

that says my love is real


i want to write a poem

for my darling friends

i want to write a poem

maybe i just did
