This describes how inspiration can come and go in an instant.

 

I wait for her, she's nowhere in sight,


can't be coaxed out into the filtered light.

 

She's moody and unpredictable, I'm vexed at her ways,


I long for her to come home, just for a moment to stay.

 

If only I could lock her up in my mind games,


too swift to let me catch even a glimpse some days.

 

When she does come, it's always like the very first time,


I play her like a violin concerto while she's still mine.

 

And in an instant, she leaves my arms again,


no matter how hard I try to satisfy her every whim.

 

But I still love her more than life itself,


so again I wait for my inspiration, feeling bereft.
