Paper

How dare you mock me!

Staring me down with

that blank expression

You know I need to write

Yet you're still white

Every time I try the words

Just slip off and crash to the floor

Tick Tock the clock is ticking

I really need this

Yet you stare back at me, empty

I finally give up

Crumple you, throw you at the basket

I miss

Only to grab a new piece of paper and begin again
