                                        Discharged by the moon
                            I reached the peak of my energy tonight
                                        The moon is fading now
                                           And so is my writing
                                       Tender kisses I imagined
                                          Love in every human
                                 Cared for each and every one of you

                                      Discharged by the moon
                                  Letter from a dried out writer
                            Now I can only wait for it to awaken again
                      My soul is ripped apart,scattered all over the place
                             I want it so bad,but it aint there no more
                              I`m a ghostrider,defeated by the moon
                      My silhuette does no longer appear on the horizon

                                   A glass of wine might do the trick
                                     After is Saturday though
                                     Can you hear my desperation?
                                      I would do anything for you,
                                 if you gave me back my inspiration
                               So brutally swept away from my path
                              So vivid in mind,but so far out of reach

About this poem: halfway into the writing of it,my inspiration came to a complet stop.After I talked with a good friend,(not about the poem) EUREKA!! there I had the idea/inspiration to finish it..strange that,isnt it?

    Awesome poem and I'm glad you were inspired to write it! "So vivid in mind but so out of reach" Oh, how I can relate to that, and it is sooooooooooooooo frustrating for me! Excellent one - loved every word! :) Always, Laura

    I like the thought processes behind writing this poem as well as the poem,'s so true..just step away from a writing lull and something out there will energize u...even an old friend with kind energetic words...I got inspiration from some bizarre shopping experience last week..all these colorful long ostrich feathers..there they were dancing in the flourescent light waiting to be touched! Yes...great tho'ts..Love, GWendolen

    Suggest a hearing of some Hector Beriioz - Symphonie Fantastique or Romeo and Juliet. It works, especially with a fine bottle of vino on the table. Congrats on the selection. daver

    In time you will tap into your fountain once again dear one, have no fear you aren't finished yet, there is still words left unsaid, continue your journey, if you run out of ideas just look up to a wonderful sky God has created just for your imagination. Love,Vie
