Poetic Frustration

No rhyme has entered my mind
Lately I can't seem to find
Words and ideas to artfully write
Poems with a clever lyrical bite

As my mind draws just blanks, I sit and I fret
Hoping to find a poem to beget
Creating new stanzas has me beguiled
Without their appearance I'm totally riled

I'd like to force-feed a rhyme into my head
A poem that would be universally read
But it doesn't seem to happen, try as I may
Creating a poem doesn't work quite that way

This conundrum has me poetically numbed
I feel like my brain is poetically dumbed
Come to me please, you rhyme of elation
Put an end to my poets' rhyming frustration

Know what you mean Stan, I'm feeling a little dry on the creative front at the moment - but I'm sure you will find plenty of rhymes soon!
