Val enjoys writing rhymed poetry with a valuable message in it.
Writing about writer's block is better than not writing anything.
-- Charles Bukowski
There are those times when I'd like to share
but all those good words won't come to mind
my Muse taking a day off or just doesn't care
so I've got to look for a fun of some other kind.
There's something to do more often than not
while both my reader and I deserve a break
anyway writing is not something really hot
and pausing is good for moderation sake.
So I deceive myself while without inspiration
as some lying comes helpful at such times
when mind is too lazy for some creation
too dry to come up with any rhymes.
It's when I am just in this mood to yap
something in me seeking its expression
and that's when I usually write some crap
just driven like by certain unclear obsession.
You know when you feel great
and you want to let the world know
but then your mind's telling you to wait
for Muse is either gone, or getting too slow.
I miss my Muse, her breath on my neck
I always imagine her as a gorgeous dame
a dirty old man, it's my choice -- what the heck
an ugly old bag would've never inspired the same.
So I'm patiently waiting for her return
and in this meantime some crap will do
I won't see any difference in money I earn
it's only that one more time I am boring you.
