My Muse

My Muse ©

My Muse refuses to let me touch her
doesn’t mind when she’s flirted by others~
I scream at her at her sadistic morals
but she ignores me.

My muse is a whore;
she sidles up to the Toms and Dicks and Harrys
of my blogosphere, lets them fondle her
while I watch in exasperated disbelief.

My Muse, she teases me, tells me she loves me
tells me she plays around, so I could gather
my own feelings and love and desire
and face her sitting down, while she bows at my feet.©

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

    Wow! I guess your muse is very, um, playful. Yeah. That’s it! She’s playful with a youthful spirit. I hope she doesn’t run off or get lost!! Maybe she needs a curfew?
