She Writes at Night

Updated on August 8, 2013
Source

She writes at night by candle light,

Her poetry and prose

The only time the Muses rhyme,

Or so the story goes.



Her heart inspired, filled with desire

As the words drip from her pen

The only time her troubled mind

Is sharp and clear again.





Source

As she writes, a spark of light

Reflects the tears she’s shed

As words unspoken and songs unheard

Dance to the tunes in her head




This troubled soul continues to write

Unable to silence the voices

Till the sun comes out and the Muses stop

And she’s unable to make her own choices.




Source

Then she’s taken away to sleep all day

In a room that’s padded and safe

Behind locked doors where few ever roam

Is where you will find this waif

Source

For days and nights she sits in the light

Never uttering a sound

Until that night when the moon is bright

An orb, so big and round




Then once again, she writes all night

On the Muses she’ll depend

The only night her addled mind

Can think things through again




Source

Till the sun comes up and the moon is gone

Her final words are penned

A prayer, perhaps, to save her soul

A cry for peace. . . Amen.

      Beautiful flow and rhythm to this poem...that's two poems of yours I have read now, and there seems to be an underlying thread of desperation in them, but still a glimmer of hope....as Tennyson said..."to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield. " :)

      I humbly bow to your applause dear Vincent and share your struggles with an uncooperative soul, perhaps that is why this poet writes only when the moon is full.

      I applaud your talent, I was moved by both you and your Muse. I know of such nights/days, they come often, my quill is ready, yet my soul is not always. I pray for your peace dear poet. Voted Up and shared.
