Here I Sit

Here I sit, in the dark

Trying hard to find my art

I sit and stare and try to think

But all I do is blink and blink

Here I sit, by myself

No hand to hold, no one to help

I try to wake from languid dream

Inside my heart it tries to scream

Here I sit, mind gone cold

No inspiration will take hold

I yawn, I stretch, I blow my nose

Still the emptiness takes hold

Here I sit, in the dark

No piece of mind, no warmth of heart
