I am afraid of being a cliche

Message from Writer

Stop me if I'm no good

I will erase the first draft.
There will not be another.
Undo every word.

I will delete my work,
remove ideas without remorse,
and shut down.

The viral hope
that my thoughts were worth reading - 
dragged to the trash file.

I skim over my heart,
burn the cliches,
proofread the dreams.

This has been said before.
This has been broken by its creator.
This has been blown apart.

Delete the belief
that I could be different.
Quit without saving.
