Whenever My Muse Calls

Whenever my muse calls
The words will always speak.
My pen will always flow
No matter where I am.
A pad I always keep.

I write parked in my car,
Or in the grocery store.
No matter where I am
My pen calls out my name.
I write until my brain is sore.

Sometimes a word or two,
Or a completed verse.
Ideas flow puzzle-like
For me to fit the pieces.
Could this be a curse or not?

Maddening at sometimes,
The creativity side of me.
Mumbling to myself.
People will always stare,
As I look back glassy-eyed

My muse will not be ignored
And my pen will always flow.

    Love it, this is how I used to be when the ideas were flowing more naturally to me! Now I have to come here to get inspired by contest themes!!

    Andrea, oh believe me, if it wasn't for these contest I would be sitting on empty. But when I get inspired by one of these, words will pop-up at the darnedest time so I must either write it down or memorize it. But with this old mind it usually disappears before I can grasp on to it tightly. Warm Smiles, Connie

    I know how you feel, unfortunately I don't carry around a pad with me all the time(sometimes I do), but I do repeat the lines I came up with over and over in my head until that is all I can think of...the poem in my head! This way I can get to a place and write it down before I forget! Of course I do get strange looks from people as I'm trying to do things while memorizing my verses in my head! I will not forget them, no way, I can't do that, I know where you are coming from! Great Work!!
