An Application

This is my application

I plan to dazzle
I plan to inspire
I plan to live

I will give you what you want
with a voluptuous form
and a knowledge of time

I will fill your empty places
with my soul
and my existence

I will challenge your senses
with my arrogance
and my selflessness

I will open the curtains
of the bedroom
as you watch from between red satin sheets

Your notebook laid out so
Your face twisted into a concentrated content
The sheets flowing over your naked form
and you write a poem about my thighs
while I pour you some coffee

This is my application
to be your muse.

Well done. I like how it was written. You kept it simple yet effective. -Michael
I love this! It speaks to my muse's heart! Such power and emotion residing in something so simple as this poem. Very well done!
