Death of a Muse

how did we let you down, Dolores
you poured your heart out

song after song
did we consume too much

or all of you, so much
you had nothing left, but a broken spine

to carry you
from venue to venue

I never got to tell you
you already became an angel

the one whispering in my ear
when I’d hit bottom

your voice found my soul
your banshee wails

a lament for my pain
on your wings, I was lifted

back to life
the gift, now re-gifted

alone in a hotel room, gone
thank you, Dolores

for whispering, that I might hear
all those years ago

you told me
I had more living to do
