Your Muse

Your Muse

Envisioned as man's muse in pantheistic dance
I light inspiration, perfect a lover's trance
Spiraling around in sensual Xanadu
I provide impetus, making dreams come true

An impulse, a longing, conjured me with stirring
Let me fulfill your need where desire's occurring
My sprightly spirit takes flight with exhortation
We can share, in midair, love's manifestation

Allow me to inspire with artistic impression
Living in your fantasies, whispering confessions
I'll awaken passions you never felt before
Like a consecrated painting, forever to adore

My lingering kiss can instigate devotion
Let me express love as poetry in motion
I'll be the music in your mind, you can't refuse
The obsessive melody to sing, as your muse

Good morning, dear Jill!Β  Thank you!Β  I eat, sleep, and dream romance...lol..and to be someone's muse in love would be to inspire and motivate them...to embrace romantic energy and a state of mind to love all things passionate...like music, art, poetry, dance, writing, etc....those things that make life beautiful.Β  Love n Hugs, xo ;)

My Dear Cherie,

You have taken me to places
I have never been before
I thought I'd never find love
My faith you have restored

.
Together we will float away
To the Planets and the Stars
I, Your Muse, will treasure you
For the Soulmate that you are

All my love,
Larry xxx
