A Tribute To My Muse - Sonnet 3

By Delphoid-Q

How shall I best convey your being?
You, the spring of all of my creation;
From your eye streams all of my poetic seeing
Yet my truest art stands as but an imitation.

I feel my limitations with searing touch
And feel unworthy of but the merest glance;
For being unable to describe you as such
Is like being ridden through with a lance.

Tell me, fair creature, how to capture you in verse
And I shall take up pen and be enthralled;
Let me but in your presence myself immerse
And the inspiration you grant shall forever be recalled.

For I look on you as my all-inspiring muse,
For allowing your essence with these lines of mine to fuse.

    Thank you darling *kisses*� I really appreciate that. Kitty, you ARE the girl in the picture. She reminds me of you in many ways: powerful and commanding yet vulnerable and fragile at the same time� Plus, the naked bit helps too ;)

    A beautiful work to reflect a beautiful mind. Joyous intoxication and frustration at being unable to properly share the feeling with others. Many thanks for gracing the world with your words ... =)

    Now .. how can one grow tired of the structure of a wording configuration. Every piece is a song .. transperant this sonnet must be in this modern world of diverse poetry, i am ignorant to the style ... Whatever you say, this was very well done
