It left me quite suddenly,
The exact time is difficult to say.
It was near the first day of winter;
That’s when my inspiration went away.
My life went into a tailspin,
An inescapable vortex of bland.
Nothing was as it was before
And no one could understand.
I withdrew inside myself
As the hours became days and days.
So, I thought of several ways to cope
And I pursued them with no delays.
First, I cut off my friends completely.
My normal activities ceased.
But my bouts of misery grew worse.
Their frequency increased.
Then, I went to all my friends
To find out what they thought.
But none of their words provided
The type of feedback that I sought.
The highs were nowhere to be found.
The lows never seemed to pass.
I didn’t comprehend how long
This phase was going to last.
Suddenly, it was over.
My computer was finally fixed.
The ohm force plug-ins were back, and
My creative drought was nixed.
I was back to being a mellow man.
My creativity flowed on and on.
It was great to see their faces again.
Welcome, ohm, my friends…welcome home.
