Grasping At The Fragments

Grasping At The Fragments

A Poem by Alicia™

Inspiration left without a goodbye

My mind lingers behind on words I have said,
And my fingers waver, pining for the touch of ink.
Inspiration has left me, throwing behind
Nothing but recycled phrases and clichés.
Don’t they all sound identical?
Me, I can’t tell my pieces apart.

Laughter still rings in the air;
The hummingbirds still sing,
But their songs fall to deaf ears;
To a mind that can’t put lyric-less songs into words anymore.

Inspiration left without a goodbye,
Taunting me as I grasp at ends,
Trying to gather together the fragments of my mind.

Alas, the mind of a poet can only do so much;
Only so many words can pour fourth
Before the mind retreats into an empty shell,
With a jaded poet to go with it.

Author's Note

This was written a little while ago, in the same state of mind as I was while writing Muse Wanted ( and The words are pretty easy to interpret, so feel free to take it however you want.

this is a good write!! I like the imagery presented and some of the phrases - "inspiration left without goodbye" - and "the mind of a poet can only do so much" is my favourite - and true!! nice!

This is marvelous.
Inspiration is such a marvelous thing, and so many people spend much of their life looking for it. But it's so fickle, isn't it?
Your words expressed this completely perfectly, I think.
