What's Happened to my Muse?

What's Happened to my Muse?

A Poem by Joyce S. Greene
"

"Only the Shadow knows for sure" . . .

"

 

 

 

All alone, I wonder

what's happened to my Muse

Has he left me for another

or gone on a two week cruise

 

I admit my poetry

doesn't sing with passion

My words are never stylish,

nouveau nor in fashion

 

Did he finally conclude

I'm just too plain and boring

Was he dreaming of a poet

more sexy and alluring

 

Has he found the one

who really turns him on

A mermaid or a siren

who never makes him yawn

 

I can only pray my Muse

hasn't fallen beneath a tire,

under the wicked witch's spell

or become a Trump new hire

 

Does anyone have a clue

if my Muse has lost his life

Did anyone see Miss Scarlet

in the Billiards Room with the knife?

Great rhyme and I loved the little twist (let's hope it's not the knife) at the end. Perhaps some evil poet is keeping them all in a tower and filling our read requests with their poems! Nice one Joyce.

No, but I saw Colonel Mustard with a hot dog and some relish. Very cute Joyce, have you found him yet?

you are never plain and boring...i would opt for the "cruise" being the reason for the absence...

they take vacations, those muses, without notifying us...
