Reams of notebook paper
Gigabytes of data
Are occupied by my
Unfinished work

Blossoms that bear no fruit
My mind is a deluge
of stories and poems
Left Unfinished

Here, a sci-fi screenplay
Tales of wonder and awe
Tales now abandoned
Left Unfinished

There, a novel attempt
accepting a challenge
and failing miserably
Left Unfinished

Everywhere, scraps of notes
Anything I thought of
Sillborn ideas abound
Left Unfinished

Am I a hopeless crank
Wasting everyone’s time
and my paltry skill on
Unfinished work
