My muse has left the building
The music has stopped playing
And the brush no longer paints.
I don’t understand why she left,
She was just going out for some
Froyo and never came back.
I have tried her phone, Instagram,
And Facebook. She seems to have
Me blocked. Did I say something wrong?
How does one apologize to a muse?
I am sorry my drawing was ugly, my words
Harsh, my chords dissonant.
I will try to continue my work, but the
Cracks are obnoxiously clear, I fear
Everyone can feel, my muse has left me.
