Writer’s Silence

Monica

A writer lives

in a world of silence

sometimes welcome calm

other times deafening torment

the heart may beat

words falling into place

like good little soldiers

or it may stutter and stammer

at a loss to find rhythm

or any sense

wretched cycles

from morning’s light

to midnight darkness

absent sounds of a soul

searching for a breath of life

Fairy Muse

fairy muse1

Hide me

within your poetry

let me sneak between words

and lie between lines

giggle among ink blots

fairy muse

you cannot catch

yet teases and taunts

every waking moment

draws from your pen

thoughts not of this world

caresses from your soul

longing aches and desires

calls from your mind

moonlight emotions

searching for daybreak

in a world bleak with gray

grabs from your heart

beats forgotten and dusty

crying for life

rhythm within melody

yes hide me

within your poetry

so I too

may feel alive

A Book of You

book of you

If I wrote

a book of you

pages would burn

with your fiery passion

smoldering fragrance

of undeniable intensity

lines would meander

in and out of each other

your complexity

wrapping around your whole

words would search

for others

more exquisitely fashioned

brilliant and deep

alas

never finding perfection

to define a being

who cannot be elucidated

with simple paper and ink
