Is the music dead?

Is the music dead

or simply quiet?

Has inspiration left

or is it just still?

 

Internal conflict

Or lack of interest?

Undigested pain

Or focus lost?

 

The creative soul

Enters dryness

But not darkness

A new frontier

 

 

The wasteland wanderer

Lost in the empty

Is seeking a

jungle of inspiration

 

To hope again

To dream again

To sing again

Maybe even, to write again

 

 

 

When one’s soul connects primarily through music

The silence inside can be deafening

Lack of emotion when listening is so troubling

Yet when you feel, even if only briefly

Hope is offered & the future, seems brighter

Cologne and Cigarettes

Cologne and cigarettes

Each one hiding the other

A masquerade of internal struggle

Conflict of the soul

The creative quandary

 

The philosopher poses life’s questions

The expressions of doubt and hopelessness

That spark songs

The faithful lover, hopes and

Writes of a future unknown

 

Singers of songs

Writer of poems

Giver of hope

Taker of doubt

Why must you smell of cologne and cigarettes?
