The Muse

A creature that drives inspiration and passion in the soul of an artist.... Why is she charmed? She has become enthralled with her subject. The artist has rendered her to her knees.

He is a beautiful,

Wild creature.

Born of dark Orchids

And Saturday morning


Made up

Of dreams

And prayers

And challenges

A chameleon

And a master

Of everything

An upside down

Banana peeler

A feast for my eyes

My hands

My soul

Dancing the dance

Designed by


And Heaven

A MacGyver

An Oberron

An Adonis

The Sun

The edges

Of his presence


Like the fire

He starts

With his smile

His laughter

His voice

Always arriving

Before him

A loud resounding

Garment of silk

A channel

I’d never stop

Lamenting Daffodils

And painting vines of black

Dolores had it right

When she said,

“I can’t sleep here.”


And then She hears that

Black Celebration

“I want to take you in my arms

Forgetting all

I couldn’t do today”

Her heart hurts


Because She knows

Someone else is in control


These words dance

In her mind

Like bodies

In a fancy masquerade

The dresses dusting the floor

Of memories and tears


Moving slowly

Together and apart

Nothing untouched

No corner ignored

She breathes in

And lets go


Wishing you were here



The sun and moon

Are both envious

And pale

Unable to sustain

Unable to grow

She pins them back

Upon the black

Of the sky

Knowing the element

Knowing what is needed



And it isn’t this

But it still means ...



Paint smears

On her elbows

Like a Rorschach test


Lips twisted

Taunting to say,

“It isn’t for you.

It never was.”


It never was



Could be the name

Of a place in a book

Of broken hearts

And thirsty souls


A race of beasts

The neverfed

Would sit with hollow eyes

Always wanting

Drained of passion


No muse in sight


She knows better

She only sleeps

Under a blanket

Of moss and earth


Waiting to be

Set on fire

Found this gem... 

I had been a big fan of all the covers that Johnny Cash had done of some of my favorite songs so I was thrilled when this cover passed my feed.


God’s Gonna Cut You Down 

a cover by Marilyn Manson

Had she known

If she knew

That would be

The last kiss

The last touch

She would have

Made it last


Tasted more

Felt more

Moved more

Gave more

Took more

Said more

Made it all



Drove it home


That space

She saw

In him

The comfort

The warmth


To make her



With every look



Had she known

There was magic

In that wind

It moved the glitter

And the dust

From her hair

And her eyes

It moved the glow

Of the Moon

Across the field

Through the fire


His fire

That touched

Her limbs

Her heart

Twisted away

In a breeze


A phantom


Just enough

To linger

To ache

To want


She held

Her breath

Caught the air

His scent

His voice


In the night

Through a room

Full of stones

And nothing

She said,

“Build me a house;

I’ll make it a home.”


A house with your heart

Windows to see

Inside and out

A fire

Always burning

An open door




From the earth

The walls will breathe

The ceiling will sing

The floor will move

With tears

With laughter

With joy

And pain


A beautiful picture

Broken in places

Carefully mended

With tape

And love

And longing


A slow dance

Through the hall

To the bedrooms


And lullabies

The touch of each other

A hand on hand

And legs wound



The stairs

Each step


For sliding

As well as


Toward the attic

A complicated room

Old toys and sad sweaters

And skeletons


Like morbid chimes

Summoning the most macabre


A light bulb that flickers

Every attic should have


A window seat

With a worn red

Velvet cushion

To sit and ponder

This house

This home

Your heart
