I, forced to swallow the most bitter pill,
Of the never was, and the never will
Shimmering veil of darkest cloth hides eyes
Of my muse, once more she comes to descry
She sees into the deepest depths of me
Because without her, I am incomplete
With a rush like wind through the fertile field
And sunlight cascading in my mind unsealed
My loosed thoughts pour forth haltingly at first
She stands now before me, moistened lips pursed

Far across the field, this ardent meadow
I hear a thousand trumpets start to blow
I allow myself within her shadow
Letting who I was, and never will, go

Great, JML!
     Well Done!


I love this part:

Letting who I was, and never will, go.

Sometimes we have to let go to create something better and new!   Thanks for sharing!

man I LOVE this one...it comes from so deep in your thoughts...that dark mind of yours i love to walk around in   ...this is perfect.
stalking you in your mind,
your jm

 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...

I would say that you have a very faithful muse, my friend.
Beautiful thoughts.

JML,
this is very well written
you have a gift for writing your deepest thoughts with much clarity,as for the reader
to feel like they know you.
I enjoy reading your mind
gemini

 I want to be the face you see when you close your eyes
I want to be the touch you need every single night
I want to be your fantasy
And be your reality
And everything between
I want you to need me,
like I need you.

just stopped by to read your mind, I mean poem again. *L*
stalking you way past my bedtime,
your jm

 she said I dont know if I've ever been good enough,
and I'm a little bit rusty, and I feel like my head is caving in.
...and I dont know if I've ever been really loved by a hand thats touched me...
and I feel like somethings gonna give...
and I'm a little bit angry.

You have done it again...straight to the heart.  Done with the style that surrounds you.
