Poetic Pause

I'm trying too hard it seems,

to put my thoughts to words.

All I feel right now is sadness,

my mind is just too blurred.

I think of something happy,

and how much I want to write.

But there is only sorrow,

no matter how hard I fight.

There's things I want to say,

ideas form in my mind.

I try to put them to paper,

but my brain won't let them unwind.

Why do I feel so guilty,

for wanting to write and smile?

I know that I'll be able to write again,

Its just going to take me a little while.

Then I can let them out once more,

let all the happiness grow.

When this poetic pause has ended,

my words will surely flow.
