free your Muse for the Poet's Place weekly prompt

A writer friend
Once told me
The secret of writing,

Is to let your muse
Run free
And take you
where it wants to go.

no matter how absurd
dark or disturbing a place
that is where you must go.

Good advice
Which I try to follow
I figure when I am writing
I am just channeling my muse.

Often I have no idea
How I ended up
Where I did.

Nor do I understand
Sometimes
What it all means.

That is the nature
Of that elusive mad creature
The artist’s muse.
