Awwww, go on then, read the poem…

 

empty pages

by punkie

 

empty pages
blank for ages
begging for a thought

mock my brain
drive me insane
ideas can’t be bought

unknown words
like flightless birds
between the keys are caught

breathe in deep
awake from sleep
come now don’t be fraught

get something down
start with a noun
do what you’ve been taught

still deaf and dumb
deft fingers numb
fuck off writer’s block
