My Muse

My Muse

A Poem by GamingGal
"

She left me, yet she has returned

"

My muse abandoned me

Long, long ago

My darling muse

Who was once my confidante

My shoulder

My rock

My helper

Had packed her bags and hit the road


She took everything I ever loved

My gift of words

My bursts of inspiration

My desire to write

And left me feeling empty

Out of place in this world

A fish out of water

A child with no mother


I became desolate and solemn

Without this friend of mine

My eyes no longer saw the beauty in life

My mind no longer ran with ideas

Instead, I was stuck in a lonely world

Where nothing had color

Nothing had meaning

And the keyboard held no draw



And then I found her



My muse, growing tired of sorrow

Had left me to seek a brighter place

A place to wait for my return

In hopes that I would find her



And I did



I found her in a girl

Who has become my everything

Who has brightened my days

Who has repaired my heart

Restored a smile to my face

A skip to my step

And my passion for life


It was here in this girl's care

That my muse was waiting

Our reunion was a joyous one

Filled with laughter and smiles

Two souls in need of each other

Having been apart for too long

Finally together again


And now that my muse has returned

She is gifting my fingertips

With all her many words

She sings them to me

In her pure, sweet voice

Rejoicing in our bond

That is once again restored

This was a terrific write GG, from beginning to end
Beautifully crafted and expressed...it read like prose but felt and sounded like poetry...if that makes any sense?
I just loved the style and the message
heartfelt and passionate, but most of all honest and sincere...

very nice, i found this had the tone of a song, which seemed to flow very smoothly and gently. the story it told was well expressed and full of the emotion that such heartbreak carries. i really enjoyed it, good job :)

Well constructed, and it elicited an interesting creative response in me. The sign of good poetry is just that sort of transmission of concepts, not just imagery and clever wordplay.

Thanks for this one!

A beautiful happily-ever-after life story, that surely inspires us all to go on when we think we can't.
