Maybe This Is Over


I'm in favor for a new muse

I know I love you

But I can't have you

All these words never reached you

Not like they would reach any one new

But your silence is deafening

And it's not kew

I thought I found some one

Who could inspire me

But you've turned your back on me

So I'm "off to" fuck "The Wizard"

And fuck her nonstoppidly

As my love for you becomes forgotten

"I will survive" this ending of a fantasy

And no longer spend pages and ink

For some one too wrapped up to think

"At all", about me

I will wipe my mind clear

Of any thoughts of you that I held so dear

And walk among a world

That spins and twirls

Knowing nothing of what it takes

To make your heart quake

It's over, "for Pete's sake"

"Gimme a break"

Loving you, is all I do anyway

It's not safe to love you

So my attention must now wander away

It will possibly be a while

Before I find another muse in my style

And taste

But if I still concentrate on you

Hiding the work from you

That is required to do

Will eventually turn into a waste

As I battle to make my love real

As, I, like a pig, squeal
