One Single Impression: Muse

You are my muse,
He said.
But you are a fool,
She said.
You are my life,
he countered.
I don't know what that means,
She said.
Neither did he;
He surrendered:
I love you.
She could not hurt him.
Her gift in reply?
It goes like that sometimes.
If love is not reciprocal
It is nonetheless love.
We bow to that light
Even if our best gift
Is nothing.

  2. I couldn't agree more. Have a great weekend weekend, Sandy!


  3. Exquisite! "we bow to the light.." I loved the last lines. Cheers, Ruby!

  4. I have been on the silent end of that conversation and on the more loving end. I like the way you have described the silent end as loving because it surely is.

  5. My grand mother said my grand father never expressed that he loved her He showed her and actions spoke louder than words
    When she got sick he cried thinking he'd lose her and she was shocked and then understood he truly loved her
    So she taught us don;t ever fall for men who keep telling you they love you cause they may not. lol
    She was some smart cookie my gramma

  7. Excellent realism in this.

    creative rendering of the dialogue
    between a muse and her admirer.
    our best gift is never nothing, love will circle aroun and find
    the one who offered her up.

  11. I liked the gift silence.. if we all could give such a kind would be more beautiful..

  12. I liked the gift silence.. if we all could give such a kind would be more beautiful..

  13. Lesson learned, Sandy.
    Even in love, do not overwhelm your muse!

  14. I love the conversation between the two lovers Sandy. Beautiful writing and thanks for the inspiration.

  15. Oh, the game of love. Silence said it all for her I guess.

    Nice write Sandy.

  16. Nice twist to the ending...silence can be a gift, but it can also be an answer ~

  17. I rather don't like it when my muse gives me the gift of silence!
