THE WRITER'S SECRET

Long ago.. in my youthful days
You took me, and showed me how
I never got over that first daze
What you did to me, and even now

You relentlessly chase me down
My infatuations.. still, I can't hide
A fierce hurricane, you surround
Until this dreamer takes a ride...
Come on, let's see how we collide 

Yes, rush onto me in every dream
Carry irresistible scents of love
Until soft whiffs of passion bloom
Uncage the beast, release the dove

Intoxicate with.. your every breath
I'm hopelessly drunk.. your fantasies 
The amorous tug, who could resist
Chance to explore, deep mysteries

You relentlessly chase me down
My infatuations.. still, I can't hide
A fierce hurricane, you surround
Until this dreamer takes a ride...
Come on, let's see how we collide 

Your wanton lust for my prolific pen
Excited sighs... for my spill of ink
We're making love on a bed of white 
Sweet girl I love.. the way you seek

Together, the aroused tensions mount
Impassioned climax.. it rises to this
Poetic perfection.. feel the release
Conceived a poem, in wondrous bliss

Always and forever, my true best friend
Whether the morning, or into the night
I'm still taken.. oh, countless inspiration
This grateful writer, awed by your sight

And you relentlessly chase me down
My infatuations.. still, I can't hide (not one)
A fierce hurricane, girl you surround
Until this dreamer takes your ride...
Come on, let's see how we collide 
How far.. we can ride this tide
Through the day and into the night
The writer's secret.. you were my sight

My secret...
Your sight!

~Lyric Man

Note: I wanted to celebrate this writer's secret.. my Muse! She has been by my side since my teens. She's never abandoned me and she whispers sweet inspiration into my soul, even in my dreams. I love her so much, words simply cannot contain the depth!

We get our greatest ideas from the people we hang around with. Everyone is different no one's the same. I think it is awesome that you have some one who gives you this much sight in to yourself.

Been there, done it, so hurts when the heart doth plummet. But your words revived my spirit, true love, my muse, my wife, my life, with her, in her all that's nice. Encore L.M. may you write forever, encore, encore, write on! Mick

Wow! indeed, L M. I wish my muse was a live-in. Usually I'm the one doing the "chasing down".

WoW! Lyric, I enjoyed this passionate verse. Your muse is amazing. She causes you to write some wonderful lyrics. I really like how you described your muse in such a personal way. You are lucky to say she never left you, I can't say the same ( I think my muse is still on vacation). As always well done:-) Alexis

Mostly about your pen on white sheet (of paper). The PEN IS mightier than the sword or Cupid's Arrow (?) shalom, shalom

We'd all be lost without them. The muse is a miraculous gift, indeed. Thanks for the wonderful read...now I need to go write another muse poem, myself.

Ah, yes! Intoxicated with the word! Well penned, Lyric Man. Poets That We Are… "Poets are umbilical cords— chosen links of the pregnant mind and its births—amniotic guardians of the poetic descendent..." "...mere servants of the word..." "When the keyboard, cobwebbed in silence, ceases to ink, let not stillness miscarriage the word; and may our creativity become like Lazarus..." Peace and Love and may our muses remain eternal...seeding the wombs of our fertile poetic minds. Millard Lowe
