[Poetry] A Muse In A Dark Place

For many days, my pen lay still,
Broken of hope, broken of will,
The ink ran dry, the page lay bare,
As blank as my reflection’s stare.
In the dark, they started to perish,
My art that I had so long cherished,
But as I lay there in the void,
I slowly returned what had been destroyed.

    1. “Flirting with life” I LOVE that. And I think our muses deserve breaks every now and then 🙂 I’m sure when your muse is done flirting with life, she’ll be bursting with creativity and inspiration 😀


    1. Aww that’s so sweet of you to say, Shedeau! It’s knowing that there are people like you who like reading my work, that helps me keep this going, so thank you 🙂
