Musical Muse

Poetic Asides – Poem-A-Day Challenge – Day 13 Prompt:


Today's prompt is to write a poem based off your response to a song. You get to pick the song, but I ask that you please indicate which song sparked the poem. You can do this by quoting a line or two from the song between the title and poem--as I've done a few times this month; or you can just put the song title and artist in parentheses after the poem.

“Listen to the melody, ‘cause my love is in there, hiding.”
Donnie Hathaway--A Song for You.


For You

every word
every phrase
every line
every poem
every story
everything I write

has your fingerprint
the sound
of your voice
your breathing
in the silent spaces

your love moves me
to write, to pour
my words upon the page
I long to connect
to people
with my words
in an echo
of our connection

when my life is gone
and you’re reading
my journals
the words and phrases
the ink filled pages
know that it is
all of it
for you
