A train of thoughts
Collided with my mind
Screeched, derailed
Let out a whine.
Thoughts of old
And new,
Caught fire
Smoke flew.
Memories burned
Mind askew.
Lost expression
On my face
At the thought of the train
Set ablaze.
Argh! Too many thoughts
Too many words
And fire
Mind blurred.
Can’t write
Can’t think
This blank page
Mocks, then winks.
I give up!
I’ll try next week
When I find
My mind at ease.
