my poem titled “Inspiration”

inspiration, motivational, poem, poetry, Uncategorized, writing

Inspiration.

The illusive comet,

The sleeping giant,

The rare budding flower.

You evade me for days,

For nights.

You slip between the shadows

Of my mind,

Leaving undiscernible bursts of notions

In ink black wells.

Like fireworks,

All too quickly, you disappear from view.

Your brilliance fizzling out

Before it’s fully comprehended.

Like trying to catch water

With a net,

Or contain fire in your palm,

It’s impossible to contain,

To control.

-Collins
