I Want to Write a Poem by Astrid Braun

I want to write a poem

But I can’t sort out my thoughts

Or feelings in a way that will

Flow and satisfy


Today is one such that

My body reflects the lethargy

Present in my mind, the swirling pool

Of emotions caused by nothing


I like to solve Sudokus

Eyes scanning, pen at the ready

Focusing on anything but the problems

That have no answer and no origin


It focuses me, in a way little else can,

A relief from constant introspection

My bad habit in excess

And my savior in uncertainty
