Could I find a better way to say just what I mean?
I know I need the clearest words to set the ideal scene
Yet, for written words to state some fundamental truth
They must not fail immediately, because they are uncouth
But, like a thought that flashes by and cannot be recalled
Writers’ block denies my wants and literacy is stalled
Whilst others pen the perfect phrase, to capture and delight
I must sit with becalmed hands at my keyboard in the night
