I Write Poetry When I Am Inspired

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 163 People

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

    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 I just get this overwhelming desire to express my feelings, and a poem (or a story) is born.  The words come flowing from my heart, out through my fingertips and dance across my keyboard.  It hits me out of nowhere, and I grab a pen and some paper or log...

    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...
