has anyone seen my muse?

.

he disappears for days at a time
doesn’t call to say he’s okay
or when he’ll be home

i know he’s out painting the town red
’cause he tracks the paint all over the floor
inconsiderate prat

.

when he does show up
it’s like a kamikaze attack ~
only it’s my suicide he plans
never his,  oh no!

.

i’ll sit at the keyboard
desperately begging him to appear
but the silence only deepens

he won’t come back when i ask

.

he waits until i’m almost asleep
or driving down the freeway
or in the shower
with shampoo in my eyes

.

then  he demands attention

immediately!

“write the words down now!
or i’ll take them away!”

never to be remembered again

.

it might be easier to take
if  he was off  helping others
but that’s not his style

he meets a friend of  mine’s muse
at bars and whorehouses
committing acts of  debauchery

.

while i sit alone with my laptop
trying too hard
to be wild or witty

.

but without him

i run out of  wo….

baby did a bad thing

.

.

i knew she was gonna break my heart

but once i touched her

there wasn’t a fuckin’ thing i could do about it

.

she took my heart between her teeth

and shook her head back and forth

like a dog with a bone

.

only i was the one

slavering at her feet

willing to do anything….

a. n. y. thing.  she wanted….

to convince her of  my undying love

.

all in the split-second

of  eternity

that it took to touch her arm

.

but she spit out my heart

whispered  “maybe another day”

and walked away

.

then baby did a bad, bad thing

.

.

i wasn’t enough….

she wanted the adoration

of  every man in the bar

and was willing to do

what they wanted to get it

.

i felt like cryin’

knowing she’d go that low

for a standing ovation

.

i lit a cigarette

caught her eye

then turned and walked away

.

i knew i’d find true love again

somewhere else….

another day

</3

the world sighs { Earth Day 2014 }

the world sighs

the wind dies

the sky weeps

the moon fades

the stars hide

the sun refuses to rise

the universe is sad to see

what we have done to Mother Earth

twilight
such a lovely word
such a lovely time of day

when the sun is almost gone
the last vestiges
streaks  of  pink  gold  orange  red
fading away into the indigo heavens

the  firmament continues to deepen
from the darkest blue  to purple  to black

the stars come out one by one
the moon glows brighter and brighter

then twilight is no more
as the night wraps ’round the Earth
