The Strapping of the Wench

In hiding place I found my muse
made of pewter air
breathed her in like cool and dark
a chocolate from the Frigidaire

My muse WAS there but shes not fair
now shes stuck in scenery of heart
between the tender nape of neck
and the garden afraid to start

She is part of the transformation
in movement out the door
the sound she makes cries free me
and then hold me evermore

Twirl she says in softest voice
to me with a evil wink
then lifts her pretty skirt off floor
and dances in my ink

I brush her off my shoulder
in her next whim then I find
she is flapping arms and darting tongue
in rhythm from behind

Im tired of chasing after her
cant she see I need a break
my words are screaming in my head
and what comes out now just seems fake

She jokes a lot when I am down
thinking shell get me laughing
but if I could catch that wicked wench
she would get a real good strapping

Martie,  it must have worked!

Cause this is superbly done and I could
see that little devilette sitting there
sticking her tongue out...  I recently
quoted myself as saying that female muses
were the worst ones....

Mayhaps I was right?

And ain't it odd that I go back to see what I wrote and see that it wrote part of itself twice --- Well, repetition adds emphasis, like I said somewhere else....

Winsome little lassie, she
who hangs your words in fantasy
but the chocolate odor of the air
sat her down in easy chair
and pulled from blue a little feat
oh, chocolate's a little treat!

Suggestion: instead of that strapping, try just hugging her for a good long while. That seems to work for me.

(giggles in delight) Now now now, spanking and punishment isn't the way to calming this wench, it is all in sensitivity and comfort! (giggles) I just love this, sweet friend, God Bless You, sweet friend, your poetry is always so colorful and playful, yay, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Martie, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,

Nietzsche wrote in Thus Spake Zarathustra a scene wherein the Witch was counseling Zarathustra on dealing with women. He wrote:

"The Witch said, "Zarathustra, when you go to woman, bring your whip."

I always wondered if old Nietzsche (confused as he seemed to be) was really talking about a poetic Muse.

wont be ignored.
Strapping or not... lol

This one of yours was a lot of fun!
And Martie, your new picture is absolutely charming!

I thought for sure I'd replied to this one.

*chuckling*

I'm beginning to wonder about you, lady...are you sure you are not Cpat's muse? I understand she is fond of leather and such as well...


Thanks for the smile this morning.

Martie... to see the laugh in this one, tells me..
well done and I understand your muse far better than I should..lol..

Ser... you got my muse all wrong... she isn't into leather or pain... and Martie has too much class to be my muse. She is a lady after all...

Yes, Ron, of course she is a lady, and one who has my total respect. I didn't mean to offend or imply otherwise.

sigh.
