Just Not Ready

I take pen to paper and say the words I didn’t.
Even while editing my mistakes, I can’t show any commitment.
Instead, I stare at what I have—
like watching grains fall from an hourglass.

I’m not ready,
I’m just not ready—
ready for another love story.

Outline after outline,
I am not yet satisfied with it being just “All right.
Like a writer’s block I can’t dispel,
the words are there! But I can’t tell…

I’m not ready
I’m just not ready—
ready for another love story.

Flawed are the characters with little subplots.
Focusing on mine, I never gave yours any thought.
We were supposed to fill these pages
but somewhere, my character never adapted to the situations. 

I’m not ready
I’m just not ready—
ready for another love story.

Writing with no muse, I guess I’ll just call it a day
rehearsing the words I never did say,
May the moon and stars watch over you.
Find the love you deserve. It’s what your character would do.

I’m not ready.
Sorry,
I’m just not ready—
ready for another love story.
