Please just look away,
for I cannot write today.
My mind is filled with nothing;
all thoughts and ideas are sleeping
in their miniscule, cozy beds.
They are unmoving and silent,
fallen into the spell of sleep.
Please just look away,
for I cannot write today.

Loved the honest expression and theme in the poem. It's hard to find poems which reflect the author's emotions, and this is one of them.
