Spooky

The devil has tweaked my fingers
They seem to spew out bad advice.
Over the wrong words they linger.
Although I think sweet and nice

I would speak of love and duty
But it does not come out that way
It outs like captured booty
Nothing like what I would say.

The devil's turned my hand sour
The flowers wilt that I would hold
They seemed to have lost the power
And type out words of mostly bold.

I sit and stare at what I write
It seems to spell out only bore
I see no words of sheer delight
I cannot write of love no more.

The nightengale has turned to crow
For what reason, I do not know?

Ah, my friend, do not despair!  We all have times like this!  I've had one for over a month!  Your wonderful and talented muse will soon return!

The spiritual wind that holds survivors aloft, plants the seeds from which bloom new hope ... R.J.G.

is it the devil??? ... or that randy dragon  

and even when you call it crow...
I call it cool... way cool...

but I sympathize with ya me stinky...
me moody muse has run off again too...
her and some randy dragon took out for Shangri-La.
*winkiewinkie*

Some people find subtlety in strangers
if you find anything~let me in
Your eyes~you see everything
my eyes~I see it all together now~and I know

You are sweet and nice, I enjoy your words. Tell the devil to take a hike, and let you
get on with life. Pick up that pen and start to write of love again. Then watch the ladies swarm in.

In the dark of night he dwelt
cursed the hand that he was dealt
no one knew of how he felt
he wanted just one heart to melt

and she, she silently looked in
saw the darkness there within
cursed the dark that held him tight
and held him long throughout the night



Karilea
If I whisper, will you listen?...
I would rather be silent and write, than speak loudly and be bound.

You mean there's a REASON why everything I try to say comes out wrong? *G* Geesh... I thought it was just me... so glad to know I'm not at fault (Okay, I know I tell Toe that everything is my fault... and it generally is. *G* But I do sometimes wonder! LOL) This is great, Seymour... and not at all sour! *S*
