My muse lies in a glass casket.

Sometimes I abhor its existence.

For it leaves me frustrated beyond measure.

When my inspiration disappears, and I can find no metaphors or rhymes.

It is a famine or a feast to these fingers of mine if it decides to converse at all.

But when my muse rises, I am often taken aback by the stories it wishes to tell.

My muse will never be my downfall.

For, without my muse, I cannot exist.
