This post was written in 5 minutes.
I was having such a hard time writing sonnets for homework so i wrote one about writing them.

I try to write but nothing comes to mind
I stare at my blank page and feel the dread
The due date's coming closer, what a bind
I write, but it's all jumbled in my head
The words don't fit and I erase again
I cannot stop the coming of my fate
As panic comes words tumble from my pen
Oh why, oh why, did I procrastinate?
After so long I find the words that fit
I write them down before they run away
The lightbulb in my head, it has been lit
I write the final line. It took all day!
At last, I'm done. I'll go and turn it in.
Oh, no! There's two. I start over again.

Welcome to the site! I can see that we're going to have a whole lot of fun reading your poems. :)

I did notice you had a meter glitch on this line here:

After so long I find the words that fit

One possible way of fixing that would be to change "After so long" to "Eventually"

I look forward to reading what else you'll write.
