My Muse Of Poetry
Not all the worlds belong to me
Not all the words set me free
What the heart loves
is of will
I just free some words
to confine its spill.

Premium Member a muse abused

I'll just step
very softly,
tip toe,
on this blank page.
My inner critic?
fast asleep!
I'll tap dance,
while he snores.
For freedom
has a jazz band beat
...soon twirling dizzily...
The prison guard stirs.

Dark Knight-tress 

This gown I feel nothing
Silk less feelings
The odor of intimate apparel lessens 
Vanity fare from any sun
Warrior of beauty
Where have you gone?

All lovely words

All so misconstrued

Your mind's in knots,
as stress plagues thoughts.
On hope you cling,
to bloom like Spring.

Its fine my dear,
nerves can cause fear.
Don't be so scared,

crushing sullen passion
across ripe crimson lips
holding tight those
