Can’t think of a title

I had been thinking to write a song,

But right words were hard to come along.

It has been a hectic time at work,

I was beginning to appear like a jerk.

Mind was nowadays totally blank,

I was afraid that I would have to walk the plank.

But I had to write or scribble something,

For my creativity had already started dimming.

So I took a paper and a pen,

Began scribbling words just like a hen.

Lost my ability to write words that rhyme,

Mon Dieu! I am committing such a crime.

Then came the part to choose the Titles,

Based on which I can build my fables.

I needed one with a nice alliteration,

Empty mind added only some frustration.

I then took up to write by some theme,

I realized that I was swimming upstream,

Finally I settled on the theme of Romance,

Mere mention of the word put me in a state of trance.

I began to write a poem about her,

Pouring my emotions, I was mad as a hatter.

I took it out and read out to her,

Hearing which she roared in a laughter.

She asked me first to quit my job,

and asked me to stop being such a snob.

Writer’s Block is common to all,

Making a fuss is not cool at all.

So, here I am writing and singing,

Managing to make a joyous living.

Life is now much peaceful and happier,

This Nocturnal Bird will keep singing forever.

Nocturnal Bird

    Hey Guru,

    The poem is nice, the only grievance being, I had to refer the dictionary for a few words. But great going buddy, keep up this habit of writing, it’ll only get better and better

      Ya, it is true that I had a block
      and it still continues round the clock.
      and no, didnt watch the movie,
      but heard it was too cranky!
