Dear Muse

Dear Muse,

for 25 years

you left me here with fumbling hands and

dear Muse,

don’t you tell me it’s not true!

I’ve needed you I’ve pleaded you

begged for some kind of something anything and

dear Muse,

Can’t you see that I am lost! so lost

I ain’t lazy see? I’m scared

is the problem

and don’t you care.

dear Muse

why can’t we be friends.
