I Can’t Seem To Write

I can’t seem to write
The words aren’t there
The tip of my tongue
World and long renowned
As a quick-draw revolver
And though I’ve got it aimed
There’s no ammunition

I can’t seem to write
The words aren’t there
The back of my mind
A well catalogued library
Is in perpetual disarray
And every book I want to read
Has been loaned out

There’s ten thousand clichés
For what I’m trying to convey
But try as I may and might
I just don’t have the words
I’m stuck in the mud
Spinning my wheels
Running in neutral

I can’t seem to write
The words aren’t there
The tip of my tongue
Is still a well-loaded gun
Holstered beneath a smile
My thoughts itch the trigger
But I know better
