A Musing


 
Who are all these other muses?
  Iím not jealous
 
 
I just didnít know
†† you were spilling your ink
all over town
†† † † †you arrogant fuck
 
do you think your pen
†† † is the only one I can excite?
 
†† believe me, there are plenty
of poets AND poetesses
†† † †interested in
†† †tapping my sweet metaphor
 
Oh, thatís right, pour yourself a drink
 
letís all pity the brooding poet
†† so weighed down by his regrets
sacrificing his broken heart
†† † † on his altar of shame  
†† † † † † beating himself up for not
†† †being perfectó
not being worthy
†† †of his own twisted code
 
Look at me.
†† † Iím right in front of you!
Here. Now. In this fucking moment.
†† † † † † † Iím trying so desperately...
†† Have you ever felt joy?
†† † † † I mean ever?
 
 
Arenít you going to say something?
 
What are you writing?
 
†† † † †oh. may i read it?
 
...
 
jesus
 
†† † fuck...yes, i get it

damn. †this...is...
 
 
this is fucking beautiful
