Muse For Rent

Muse For Rent

A Poem by shallimarRose
"

play it again Sam..

"

Yesterday  Sam posted a poem called Where Did My Muse Go? in which he was putting lost and found flyers out.  I was inspired to write this poem placing my own flyer and add..... 





Memories keep me awake

   Uncontrolled voices silently loud

      Sounding in the night , words

         Exiled more than once

            Forbidden secrets

               Obstinate thoughts

                  Resounding measures of time not left

                     Resting in the frontal cortex

                        Estranged from reality

                          Nocturnal nightingales

                              Testing my sanity nightly

Hi Rose. A good write about the fickle muse. A skillfully crafted Acrostic. Good presentation. Good imagery, flow and tone. Good depth of feeling. I like the power of the piece. I like this line:
"uncontrolled voices silently loud" - vivid. Good word choice. Well penned and a good read. Write on!

great one my friend! i hope you return soon and let me know you are here :/
smart acrostic poem .. i so relate to the brain that whispers just before sleep ..we simply can not keep hidden rooms ..no matter how hard we try ..it will present itself to our mind's eye relentlessly until faced squarely ...so glad i found this one and read ..so glad you shared it shallimar ..

Nicely done. I think we have al had those sleepless nights when a line or few lines flots around in our head demanding to be heard. "Nocturnal nightingales" indeed.

My pleasure indeed
The elusive muse tests our sanity so...
sometimes just won't be there...
And sometimes won't let us alone in peace...with those silent voices and obsessive thoughts!

I identified with this write so much!

Yep, he's nowhere to be found when you need him, then won't leave you alone when you wanna do something else, like sleep.

like at 3:00 am , ha.... thanks Keith. xo
This is great and creative. So often we see the Muse as a beautiful Grecian nymph frolicking in the field with her sister Muses, and coming upon a passerby in happenstance and gracing him with inspiration (or at least that's how I see it). This "ad" seems more realistic, and more human! Excellent writing!

Cleverly done! Some days the Muse abandons us; other days she just won't shut up! :)
