Beat The Clock

The deadline is fast approaching
And words escape me
No ideas
No flow
Nothing
But I keep trying
Random words
Scribbled on scraps of paper
Trying to trigger
The muses help
The clock ticks on
And my thoughts scatter
Then just when
The midnight hour
Starts creeping in
Words form from my pen
Onto the blank page
And my ideas come alive
