Days 49, 50, 51


Day 49″Death of a known truth, the fall of a man and his friend, his lover and his muse.”
I don’t know if I can write today,
It feels as if somebody died.
I don’t know where I stand.
My muse is on a holiday.
Sometimes she’ll stay,
Sometimes she’ll go.
And when she leaves,
Like when he died.
She’ll take the part of you
That feels the most alive.

I feel like death,
But, in the absence of wisdom,
Do not fret,
For the ghost and the spirit
Your maker

Open up your eyes,
Cliche’s are better the hundredth time,
Because they’re almost always right.
So get up,
Listen to the voices
As you come alive inside
I hope you will grow
I hope that you will know.
That you aren’t alone.

There are a lot of emotions,
Pumped into a 50 day period.
A lot of intense realizations
And murderous tribulations.

“Slim Shady” Day 51″
Slim Shady’s not a monster
Maybe he’s crazy,
A little off kilter
But isn’t everyone of us of our rocker?

  1. Powerful feelings, Devin, and insight into the darkness. Your muse is not on vacation! Take care of yourself, Pam

      Thanks for stopping by Pam,
      It’s nice to hear from you. At the time I was writing the first one it sure really felt that my muse was on holiday, found out a very very sad and terrible thing about a friend of mine and it basically sucked the life out of me.

      But, as in any form of entertainment (As poetry is in some circles) the show must go on!

  2. I’m sorry to hear about your friend. We all have to learn how to ‘ride the waves’ and you’re doing a good job, Devin. Hang in there.

      It’s fine, sometimes you think you know someone and something insane just comes out and your belief on some human beings just gets destroyed. It’s like you put the old person you thought you knew then the one you now know it’s such a juxtaposition… it’s an eye opener.
