    My muse
    I hear your voice and deep in my brain it begins
    All those words in the depth of my mind
    Begin to perculate one at a time.
    Its kind of like someone drops
    A dime in my ear
    And the words start to appear
    One by one
    One after the other
    Two by Two
    Three By three
    What a clutter.
    I jot down thoughts that are appealing
    Ones that are sensual
    All bought on by a small laugh
    Or that sly lil smile in your pictures.
    Even a tiny whisper.
    Before I know it,
    There are hundreds of poems being started
    Rhymes bouncing off my brain.
    I lay in the bed,
    Fallen victim of
    A writer's imagination.
    Formulating stories and poetry
    Like a chemist would in a lab with his potions
    The words too are potent.
    But then I say no to the words as I doze
    Say I will remember them when morning comes
    And then I am stuck on these "Prophetic"
    One liners
    And can't remember the rest.
    So in the journal they wait
    To be put with other words of fate.
    Then you laugh during one of our conversations
    it starts again.
    All the contemplating
    Vigourous thoughts and emotions.
    The chatter of love, songs and feuds
    All the letters doing dances of solitude,
    But then they come together so **** strong
    Forcing one to work with the other
    With each stroke of my fingers.
    Your every word is that important
    Every breath is quite the same.
    The letters are playing their own game.
    And I am trying to keep up with you my muse
    And trying not to be confused.
    But when your gone
    I wonder if
    It will be like this

    My gratitude
    given to you...
    So much more work I need
    So many words
    I can't breathe.

    VoIcE... you may be a Newbie here, but that Muse of yours is as seasoned as time itself. This is superb, everyone of us can relate to this. This poet digs your work.

    I thought this piece so eloquently describes how we feel when too many wonderous thoughts strike our minds at once. It's like that sometimes....
