A Mistress - Poem by Jack Ashenden

A mistress is the poet's ultimate desire,
only she can bring creativity to fullest fire.
A poet without a mistress is incomplete,
and perfect writing an impossible feat.
Within me a poet's love is ready to burst
twisted in absence of love's sweetest curse.
A mistress is the poet's ultimate desire
I must find her soon, before I tire.
