Clues Of My Muse - Poem by JenOfPoetry METAPHORICALLY SPEAKING

Holding onto the insecurity that
The words I hold may never come to pass
Only in school did I take a creative writing class…
Who would of thought it planted a seed that
Was dormant until a pen came into hand &
Wanted to free stand…
A challenge came into play
To test the waters of this poetry game…
Grew as time went on…

Excitement of permanently placing my thoughts
In the open filled my soul…
Soon after… social politics took the desire away
Too many wanted to be the highlighted poet
Instead of sharing the lime light… there was
Selfish recognition…

Took away the essence of what poetry mean
Couldn't let that take away the muse that
Gave the clues to pursue and evolve
This gift that has been awarded to me.
The muse that gave clues on how
Each word should be used

The genres of poetry/prose
Erot ic

Are the inspired ways to put verses
Of words on display
Can another determine the plot of
The read in which it was written or
Will they interpret their own idea
Of what it means to them…
Vision that peer into the mind's eye
Penetrating, giving stimulation of thoughts
That only I can give insight to.
Saying things that others wish they can say.
Eloquently… verbs and nouns dance together
To perceive beauty in the writings
Gracefully and picturesque are the verses
That sways the aromatic essences
Giving understanding of the pressures
That weighs the poetess to gather each
Word and syllable to form the creation
That rumbles in the mind…

The muse that gives clues on how each word should be used
Is those around me giving light where dark tries to reside…
Not by critique… but by loving me…
