Muse (definitely NOT the prompt; hour four)

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.
