Trying to Write a Poem

I want to write a poem,
but I don’t know where to start.
Let me think, so um,
maybe I’ll compare my crush to a work of art!

No that’s too cheesy.
Maybe I’ll write about darkness and despair.
A metaphor of a boy being a kite; driftin’ he-
he probably has no control in the air!

Eh, that’s overused.
Boy writing is hard.
All this thinking is making me snoozed.
This page will probably be another I discard.

Oh, hey wait a minute now,
maybe if I just read this and sit-
well, holy cow!
I actually did it.
