For five months, his mouth sounded busy tones; whenever he’d call upon the muse that sewed his words in place, she didn’t seem to care enough to stay and chat. He whispered a how are you, and she answered then left. His transparent gloom surfaced inside his chest for he longed to kneel on a knee for her.

    I’m certainly glad you’ve resurfaced and hope all is well, my friend. This is another wonderful piece.

    I’ll be fine. I have some inner lust for darkness, but I do have to fight it off.

    I think we all have an inner lust for darkness (like how you put that…) that we fight.

    I like your piece. Been there myself.

    I think she’s there with you more than you think…this was powerful. I’m glad my 3WW prompt today gave you some hope…I’m rooting for you. And I can certainly relate to that ‘inner lust for darkness’; I think all people who write poetry have some of that in them!

    That was short but powerful! You are a great writer… as others said, ‘inner lust for darkness’ is a interesting way to put it!

    If you don’t ask, you don’t get…only sometimes it’s just so hard to ask.

    Well done. How I wish the muse would stay and chat.

    I think we all carry that dark shadow which needs to be pushed back time after time after time. Nice work!

    Maybe he didn’t want to hear what she had to say. Or perhaps, she was playing hard to get. But I love the idea of the narrator communicating with his muse.

    nice, I’m thinking it won’t do any good, the muse rarely does what you want…

    I love it when people use semicolons correctly.

    Sounds like five difficult months.

    My muse was dead for a few days..

    a day in a child’s life

    I don’t always use them correctly, per say in the realm of grammar, but I always have a meaning for them being there. They’re underused.

    good use of the words… the summing up of the whole thing in the last sentence was nicely done…
