To Be Loved By A Poet #secret#writephoto

You are the love of my life
and the poetry i write–michelle

 

to be loved
by a poet,
they say,
is both
a blessing
and a curse

love him and
you unlock
the intensity
and passion
in his heart
you become his
loving muse

betray him and
you unlock
his deepest secret,                                  his darkest side
you become his
most savage
inspiration

you will linger
in his lines
and verses
in his highest highs
and lowest lows
and you will be
immortalized in
his poetry

    This is fantastic. This might sound strange but to me it feels like a classic poem, one that has been around for hundreds of years. Which, in my opinion, is a magical quality to have imbued.

  29. Just typed in “poet” in the reader section and am so grateful to have come across your blog. I love this poem and think it captures the multifaceted relationship poets have with their muses. Not all poetry is flattering and it is incredibly stressful to be in that position to someone else. Thank you for sharing 🙂
