My Misplaced Inspiration

Compliments of Me :)
Compliments of Me :)

The wordless paper in front of me is very haunting.

Without inspiration it is very daunting.

Emptiness is what fills my mind.

My muse is something that I am unable to find.

I call out to her but she is silent.

Why has she forsaken me? Can anyone tell me where she went?

I search through my mind trying find something to write.

I had plenty of ideas the other night.

But I didn’t write them down and now I suffer.

Every wordless moment is getting rougher and rougher.

I close my eyes and say, “Come to me originality.

Let me find words to flow for everyone to see.”

But to my dismay, I am still alone.

My inspiration is still lost and gone.

My nerves are shattered, my thoughts are in a wreck.

I plead, “Please come to me now! I will try any subject!”

But now I realize that my inspiration is still here.

The wordless paper is what brought me to this tier.

True to my craft, my muse stayed by my side.

And as usual, my misplaced inspiration took me for a ride.

Your muse was on break. They always come back anyway. No worries ;) Loved this one. I'm now a fan.

Your muse might have been absent, but your words did not fail you just the same. Well said-it is a mystery that happens to us all at one time or another.

Let your mind wander, your Muse is always there lurking in the shadows ready to move you to Quill. Mine sits in the corner near my desk and grins and waits for the imagery to form in his student's soul, when it does I write because my demons are released.

Writing isn't searching for what to write, just dwell on a thought and build your verse around it.

Be at peace with yourself, it will come to you, be patient, close your eyes and deep breath. You are a talented writer, I can see and feel it in you.

..and as usual you steal my heart and mind with your glowing words - they're so profound and sometimes confrontational which makes great art and they're never ever boring - you are a true original and I really love your new profile picture -now that's sexy with attitude!
