my muse

words

Words.
words.
over and over inside my head
over and over
over and over
echoing, repeating.

Can’t shut them out
can’t turn them off
so many words wanting to get out

blocked
stuck
heavy as rocks
words, these words
like static in my head

over and over and over
and over and over
and over
repeating
again and again

words without meaning
words that mean everything at all

can’t write them down
can’t give them up
bouncing from one wall to the other
inside my skull

words
like breath
can’t get enough
can’t fill my lungs

once I put pen to paper
they just fizzle out

but they come back in the darkness
and taunt me again
over and over
words in my head

echoing
screaming
white noise
over and over and over
and over

just want them out

like your words
that reach me, inside and tug
at my heartstrings
my muse longs to paint
words on my soul
but she’s just as lost as I am
trying to capture the fleeting
words, flying haphazardly spinning
around in my head

words
