thinly veiled, like a bride
or a widow
trying to give space
to find peace
yet clamoring
for wants
and desires
locked boxes
the muse is forced
to silence

  1. Jorc, I’m so glad you didn’t disappear! I would have missed you! This poem really speaks to the experience I’ve had in the last couple of months. Although perhaps she isn’t gone entirely, but I sure can’t seem to write a poem these days. And all since I got into a relationship (which has since ended as of last week). Maybe poems will return! You give me hope with yours. 🙂 Like Rachel, I’m really glad you’re back! I’ll update my blogroll.
