Sheet's plain white
Inviting to write
Mind thinks otherwise
Blank's fine it says.
Write a letter or two
Turn it into a word
Words look wonderful
Only meaning's lacking.
It's time to edit
Inserting, striking off
With no satisfactory
Compromise being reached.
Filled up sheet
Pressed into a ball
Falls into the dustbin
Nice throw it feels.
Process starts all over
Again on a new blank sheet
Previous thoughts seem
To come in handy this time.
More the attempts made
Better it turns out
