Writer's Frustration


Steaming, pressure up,

Crumpled papers, burst out curse--

Fuming! Sighs . . . . I'm done.

      Very funny, made me laugh

      Words sewn together

      I cringe,its been a long time since i tired to write a haiku.

      Dammit! I forgot the rules!

      Too many lines??

      (major fail on my part...I'm better at poems)

      : ) great job!
