Not Amused (Monotetra)



I want to write and post today
But cannot find a word to say
All the stories have gone away
My mood is grey, my mood is grey

Where will I find the thoughts to write
A wordless screen gives me a fright
Writers' block haunt me day and night
Is this my plight, is this my plight

These jottings will not work for me
My muse it seems have set me free
She skipped on me for sun and sea
So doomed I be, so doomed I be

A Monotetra has 4 lines in monorhyme. Each line is in tetrameter (4 metrical feet) for a total of 8 syllables. The last line contains 2 metrical feet which is repeated. There can be 1 stanza or many.
