thwarted (by: eddy styx)


I am stymied,
no spark
of inspiration
no stimulation
moves my mind.
no creativity
stirs within,
no whispers from
my beloved muse.
I am lost
out at sea,
with no wind
to set my sail.
I look to
my dark side,
for answers
but they are
surrounded by
a misty veil
buried within
my psyche.
in turmoil
covert and obscure,
no guiding light
to pilot me home,
through these
turbulent waters
of brine and foam.

        when we think of ourselves in others, we feel better.

          you had better have a word with Cat to see if she can wake up your muse.


          • Candlewitch

            hello Goldfinch!

            Cat broke a toe by being clumsy, so she is feeling down (and stupid!) too. Steve is sympathetic, so that helps ;)

            ever, eddy

              dear Ziggy,

              it is great to see you! I hope that everything in your life is going well. a couple of weeks ago I broke a toe on my right foot...then a week later I lost my balance and royally messed up my left knee. tomorrow I see an orthopedic surgeon. Steve has been working from home to take care of me. so at least I get to be with him more often ;) take good care of yourself!

              *hugs, Cat
              ever, eddy

              • ZIGGY
