IDÉE FIXE DE LA MUSE


daydreamer Pictures, Images and Photos

Purging myself of emotions
that continually
drift

in and out
of conscious thought
gives me

peace

if only fleetingly…

Regret in the soul
over lost love

is a millstone

trying to drag me
to the bottom

of a psychic abyss

I feel him next to me in my sleep

wake up
with the smell of his skin
in my memory

standing at the window looking out
at the day
I feel his breath on my nape…

his hand on my hip…

the whisper of his voice…

Trying so hard to let him go
but my head and my heart disagree

and I just want
the dialogue to end

so I write…

and the torment within
calms momentarily

until I realize…

he

is my muse
