Blank

For far too long, her fingertips remain frozen, sleeping on the surface of the black keys,

The screen blink, blink, blinks in impatience

And as much as she wants to respond, she’s still

Buffering…

         Buffering…

                   B u f f e r i   n   g…

An eternity goes by

Waiting for a ‘Set! Go!’

Precious time dedicated to mastering the craft

Becomes wasted hours of slow breaths, frustrated sighs, and failed attempts to light a match that was never meant to spark.

‘Change the world’

‘Inspire others’

‘Chase your dreams’ are all just doormats she scrapes her feet against

Before walking straight into a brick wall.
