This Brain-dead Mind

I sit here staring at the screen
Trying to think of something

For no words will follow kind
In this brain-dead mind

Words had better come soon
Otherwise I’ll be singing a different tune

So to switch off and forget
Then my mind will be refreshed

So much out there to write about
But nothing’s coming, giving a shout

So to rest these little grey cells
Hopefully something will scream and yell
