Muse

Muse

A Poem by Summer D.
"

If only I had an ace.

"

Muse
There is such a thing
Muse; as trying your welcome.
Risky; playing cards

A penny to name
What more do you have to play?
Gamble your own soul.

I did not listen.
Conned by a man of shadows.
Lift the mask to breathe.

The maiden was I.
Lonely and troubled of mind.
Clay to be molded.

That cold night you came.
Frost tapped at my window sill.
It demanded you!

In a swirl of black.
Quick! Upon your midnight horse.
We rode from hells hounds.

You kissed me farewell
And promised me you’d back
There you rode upon light

Never to return.
I held to spools of thin hope.
You’d return for me.

It was many years
In a street fair I saw you
Ragged, withered, and worn

You did not see me
Gone were your indigo eyes.
Priceless to all" but.

Fled; in agony.
Buried among the olives.
I bid you farewell.

I am old and still.
You, the Duke, remain my muse.
Time has not been kind.

What could've-Had been.
A mask of my own being?

A card; to trump all.

Author's Note

Summer D.
Written for someone who used to be quite important to me.
I chose to make it a romance story of some sorts....
It's much more entertaining then the truth.
If only I was smarter... and had a mask of my own.
Maybe I could've deflected the blow to come.

Oh well; no use dwelling on the past.
Onto the new....
Yet you still remain my muse.

YT,

Summer

Oh wow, this was amazing.
I echo everything that has been said. It's beautiful, powerful, very descriptive, and quite intriguing. Nicely done!

On a side note, I really love all your work. I don't know what to write each time I read your poems, so sometimes I don't comment. But they are so so well-penned and well-thought-out.

Just wanted to let you know. :)

I followed the story all the way through. I only noticed one or two grammar mistakes that can be easily fixed with a re-read. Once again, awesome job! XD

Diamonds are made under pressure, your writing shows the maturity of one who has loved and lost and survived. You pen it well. Thankyou.

I've always tended to think of the muse as a timeless and immortal friend, yet the reality is so well spelled out here. I love this line, "Gone were your indigo eyes." as it speaks volumes for withering of hope and toll taken on the soul. This poem ends sooo sadly, yet that sense of immortality is redeemed in your notes. Powerful write you have here. Thanks.

I love it! It's such a pretty wonderful descriptive piece. And I love the idea of Muses. They've always intrigued me. To me, I get this idea of a delusional girl who thinks she's living in the Medieval era. I dunno why, but I'm weird :3
