Muse (creative writing)

We had a sort of open relationship,

A six-month commitment

Where at first, it was all or nothing,

Frenzied scribblings, long lines

A list of every known romantic cliché going,

All I could think about was


After those first few crazy weeks,

We settled down into familiar patterns,

I began to anticipate the words you would bring to my lips,

I liked how you knew me better than I knew myself,

And recently? Recently we’re not talking much,

It’s like life, work, children

All of these things are pushing their way between us,

But hey, Muse, here are some words for you again.
