Oh Muse I need you now!

These thoughts clang around inside my head

and cause me pain,

but will not rise

so I may grasp them

and make them my own.

Or a lack of trust in you?

Is it because

You sneak into my nightly dreams

and disappear before I awake

and put pen to paper?

Oh Muse I need you now —

now at this moment

to convey what I am

trying to say…

    I have often contacted the WordPress Genious Technies for assistance because I am not a techno wiz like you. Just send an email and tell ’em I sent ya. 🙂 🙂 🙂
