Pellucid petals of lust,
I, lean over to smell the paper,
Where I lament my dead hopes
burning ferociously.
My pen is pervicacious
inclined to savour the smoke ignited.
The words are my soul,
Insatiable I am dipped in its white corona.
Cathartic particles of serenity forms
as I write my love,
The paper, the pen, the paper-cuts
soaks me in its sullen charm.
And I declare my writing β€” my muse.

  2. As we allow the surge to flow, the words do come as if directly pieces of soul, and the process does indeed feel like a great love from which all, there is, arises …even the paper cuts become beautiful!
    Loved getting immersed in your work.

  4. Great use if alliteration and I like your take on the muse – writing itself. That’s a huge declaration, for sure, and you’ve penned your declaration very well.
