Trouble With Incomplete Poetry

Pre-drafts upon pre-drafts,

Ideas circling,

Without beginning,

Without end.

No polish;

These poems are just

Sketches made from words

Without finesse.

Never quite finished.

My mind has so many ideas

But sometimes I just can't

Dig in to some subjects

And write them

In the way they need to be expressed.

I don't know if it's a lack

Of focus or inspiration

Or just

Lack

In general.

I look at them again.

I try to see how it can be adjusted.

Erase,

Add,

Erase,

Add,

But it still doesn't look right,

So I set it aside

Again

And hope I can finish it tomorrow.

Tomorrow comes,

And I look again.

And the day after,

I look again.

And so on.

Pre-drafts upon pre-drafts,

Ideas circling,

Without beginning,

Without end.
