The voice within

demands to be heard

Whispering insistent phrases

Singing urgent songs

Citing fragments of stories

It’s a challenge

I dare not



Those times

the muse is kind

the whispering sweetens the day

the song is sung in key

the stories provide comfort

It’s an assignment

I eagerly



Those times

the inspiration goes silent

the whispering mocks

the song sounds sour

the stories confine

It’s a place

I always



Each time

the process captivates me

whispering my words

singing my song

telling my story

It’s the reason

I always
