They say that all great artists have a muse
A person or ideal that they admire.
Therefore at great art I must always lose
By nothing in my life am I inspired.
But I do not write poetry for tears;
I do not want your pity or your grief.
My interest is in the sounds one hears;
The words themselves are my fav'rite motif
I write my poems just to hear the sound
That words make when they're perfectly arranged.
For I believe there's power to be found
In words: an influence unique and strange.
While other poets try to use their hearts,
I use my mind when I create my arts.
