Blankly I stare

The keyboard awaits input from my fingers

Blankly I stare

The document is unchanged

Blankly I stare

The thoughts refuse to form

Blankly I stare

Why must there be a word count

Blankly I stare

When was this due again

Blankly I stare

I rifle through my notes …. Surely there is something

Blankly I stare

The weather is so nice

Blankly I stare

The screen does not change

Blankly I stare

I know what I wanted to say why do the words not come

Blankly I stare

Surely the teacher will understand …..

Blankly I stare

………
