    Inspiration Flows

    Fickle Muse?

    I write poetry when I'm inspired But when will she come Soon is what she always says But I'm left alone to ponder And tear up my dreams Sometimes I'm afraid the she"s too beautiful to be with someone as ugly as me.

    Sometimes It's Sad Inspiration

    Not every inspiration is a good one...I was inspired to write something after I miscarried my baby earlier this month. This may not look like poetry to you, but the way it flows is poetry to me.   We never knew you, and I guess we never will...my little Jessica...

    Life Is My Muse

    I am thirty-six years old. I have been writing inspirational writings since I was a little girl. I have written thousands but I don't always show them to others. I take negative things that I survived in life and I write positively about them. Various things like how I was born...

    Felt This Today

    The thought of me and you has opened the door to my heart. For that door has been tighty closed,held with all my might. When you get close to me I can feel the warmth of you, and with that feeling, I can let go of my feelings that have held my heart closed for some time now. I...

    A poem written each day,

    Revealing you can say, What has crossed your mind, Helped your passions to unwind, Kept you awake at night With the thoughts of a delight, Dreams in the hanging tree: You sample so many experiences of life On that journey to become someone 's wife.

    The Hello To My Good-bye

    The world, so beautiful yet so cruel, so peaceful but full of raging wars. Every smile is led by a frown. In the darkness I see it. I see the peace. But when night turns to day. I’m just another girl born upon a grave. Are we not all bid a due with the warm welcome of hello...

    Permanence. the act of something

    that cannot be unwritten. Sure you can draw a line through it. You can scratch it out, Morph one letter to look like another. Burn the paper. Start fresh. But you can't undo it. Can't erase it. The closest thing to thoughts. Thoughts can't be unthunk. I write with a black pen...

    I just want to live “I don’t want to

    scream, I don’t want to lie, I just want to have a normal life. With friends and folly, balanced in time, I just want to have a normal life. Why can’t I stop this searing pain? Why can’t I be secure and laugh again? Why have I stopped to live at all, when for me it always...
