Dear Inspiration,

Where have you gone?

You used to never

Leave me alone.


Oh, Inspiration,

Why torture me so?

Why leave me to stare

Off into the snow?


Why, Inspiration,

Do you taunt me with dreams

That I cannot remember

When I wake from my sleep?


So, Inspiration,

I've found something new;

My very best friend,

Who shall be my muse.


Now, Inspiration,

I know the way out

Of your mess of ideas;

There's no need for my shouts.


Goodbye, Inspiration,

I've discovered the cure;

For writer's insanity,

It's love, for sure.
