Mirthless Muse

I saw a lady. She’s got the looks. Shes’ got the clothes. She’s got the attitude. She’s got the style. Something is hidden; she covers it with a smile.  …nobody cares… no one sees inside…no one sees her tears…no one understands…nobody will ever see…Here’s for you….beautiful mirthless muse…

The flowers move as you sway;

the wind catches you to stay.

The bees trace your track;

trying to catch you back.

Your lovely that’s what they say;

your smile brightens their day.

Your scent makes them shiver;

as you walk down and ponder.

One day the flowers move no more;

the wind stood still colder.

The bees lose your track;

they don’t want you back.

You were sad and lonely;

your smile makes their day cloudy.

Your scent makes them grieve;

as you sat in deep bereave.

Maybe the gods cursed you today;

no, a hesitant bee says.

Maybe the devil works its way;

to make you a forlorn lady.

P.S

It’s not easy to live life sometimes and face the world with a smile. It takes a lot of courage to reach down inside yourself…BELIEVE….there’s always a rainbow after the rain and that, as every day went by you will realize that LIFE as it is, is already the RAINBOW…the biggest silver lining of all…..You see, it’s up to you…Good luck!!!….may you find the biggest silver lining your searching…….
