May the inspiration come proudly,
And may it come without hesitance;
May inspiration course through one’s bones
And put the writer in its trance.
May it captivate and steal the soul,
Become like blood pumping through the veins;
Only then will the writer be whole,
Complete and content until it wanes.
May it make one forget who he
Or she used to be before the high,
This drug called inspiration too strong
To abandon, abuse, or deny;
One is nothing without his or her
Beliefs, thoughts, opinions, hopes and dreams-
Inspiration fills the hated void,
Acting like fine string and stitching seams.
May this higher power consume
Those in need of its infamous touch;
May it cradle, and may it embrace
Those writers, creators in need of such-
May it flow like rivers to the spring,
Shine like gleaming suns over a brook,
Soar overhead on white-silver wings,
And form into song, poem, or book.
This is a great piece... I like that the rhymes are so clean and not forced--very natural. There were a couple of spots where the syllable count threw off the rhythm a bit, which stopped me, but I think that could be fixed easily enough if you wanted to revise a little. The topic is excellent and my favorite line is "Acting like fine string and stitching seams". Nice work!
I love this poem! A drug called inspiration is indeed my drug of choice. This could well be a posted Anthem for Thoughts. It would have my vote as such. I once read a poem entitled My Battlefield Prayer that was written by a wounded Marine in combat that thought his death was imminent. This indeed was your Battlefield Prayer SerenaLantha and was written with the heart and soul of a poet. Awesome symmetry start to finish. OORAH!
Write on SerenaLantha........write on
Thanks, everyone! Yeah, I did try to keep a certain syllable count through every line, but the more I wrote, the better it flowed at least for me, so I may have quickened the pace a bit without realizing..... Killer, your flattery never ceases to amaze me...Forge, I am glad this did not make you twitch!
