Do you have a muse?

Do you have a muse,
someone who inspires;
do they always stand by you
no matter what transpires.
Do they turn your dull days
into momentous occasions;
do they motivate you
with very little persuasion.

Have you found your soulmate,
the one who anchors your feet;
are they the sort of person
who makes you feel complete.
Have you captured the one
who loves you as an equal;
do they bring purpose to your life
and not another boring sequel.

Do you belong to that someone
who always helps you grow;
are you with the one person
you always wanted to know.
Are you with that one love
you can’t live without,
or are you living your life
full of endless days of doubt.

    1. Thank you, Cindy. You always bless me with your heartfelt words. ❤️ I am thankful to say that I do indeed have a muse. And I think if there was ever a day when I no longer had them in my life, I’d likely never write again.

  2. Michelle, this is well done. Not that poetry needs to rhyme, I was engaged with some of your clever word pairings throughout. To me, they added to the substance – anchors your feet and complete, e.g. Keith

    1. Thank you, Keith. I know sometimes rhyming poems are frowned upon, so whenever I write one, I cross my fingers that people will still find it enjoyable. So glad you liked it. 😉
