A Short Poem Written out of Frustration

I was hoping to write a quadrille using the prompt provided by dVerse on Monday…this short poem is just two words over the limit and I couldn’t figure out how to cut it down. 


I must write but I cannot.

All’s turned to rot

Inside my head.


My mind is dead.

I’ll bury it

With candles lit;


The sad blank page

Attends with rage;

It is not filled


As I once willed.

The words have fled:

My mind is dead.
