A sick'ning thunder flashes 'neath the sky.
My Muse lies flat! Lies flat! Lies cold! Lies dead!
My heart pumps crimson rage, fear, dearth and dread--
I'm half alive yet half afraid to die.
Dear Muse I cannot follow where you go.
May this black rose of sorrow light your way,
My Muse, I know it's truth that you must stay
Asleep until the end of time, or no?
My Lazarus! Inspire me once more!
You, Muse, alone can waken from the grave.
Dear Muse, do kiss me sweetly, shut the door.
You kiss shall fill this empty pad I've saved!
Oh Muse, oh inspiration, oh sweet love
You live. No more thorns!

Like trying to catch inspiration from the bleak grave of forgotten life past. Though with Lazarus, there is hope, yet, darkly remote, without JESUS saying, to you,"I AM THE RESURRECTION" Deep profound words from the Bible. Though eternal life is the reward of GOD. Maybe then ?????????

dead muse
Yikes! How many times have i sat at the computer (I gave up the yellow pad years and tears ago!) and wondering where she went - I was favored and now am desolate. But like Lazarus the words rise and flow again.
Jolted me nice work!
