My Plagued Heart

I feel sad today
alone and afraid
terrified of the future

walking in the ashes of my past
circling through my mind
mistakes I've made

like a scratched record
that keeps repeating
the same lyrics

the blues station
all day long every day
I beg the powers that be

play me a new tune
to dance to today
take me from the soot

wash me clean
in the river of contentment
take me to the shores of enlightenment

groaning within myself
I wish to smash that wrecked record
beat it into bits

take in a deep breath of fresh air
start anew with no worries
to plague my heart

today my muse has denied me entry
into her inner sanctum
this is where I feel safest

far away from despair
washed up on a beach some where
cleansed in it's turquoise ocean

feeling refreshed
my muse embraces me now
telling me lovingly

sometimes we play the blues lovely one.
