Come Back To Me

The Ink Bottle sits, alone,
It’s only Companions,
The Feathered Pen,
The Paper Pad.

The Desk, once alive,
The Words,
No longer,

Love, abandon,
But wanting not,
The Freedom,
It has.

A Wooden Chair, dusty,
Reclines not,
For the Comfort,
Once given.

Time, a mystery gone,
With passing,
Never to be recovered,

Days of gloom, waiting,
Shine not, The Light,
The Heart,
Once brightened.

Come back, to Me,
My words, of Joy,
Of Laughter,
Wisdom, once known.

Oh, those words do come back and if this poem is any example, I say you have your muse back. The emotion comes through your words. I really like the opening line. Nice use of imagery and personification. Congratulations on having your poem featured. Keep on writing. Wishing you continued success. Karen

So touchy! I agree with Rodha, for certain things we must be patient. Loved this poem. "words are heart's revelation, coming straight from there and ne'er leaving". God bless you! Love, Chitra
