The Cranky Muse aka Mr. Cranky aka Muse Brad has made an ultimatum.
If I want his writing services, then I need to find a woman for us. One of Mr. Cranky’s complaints was the lack of female companionship. We seem to be suffering from a loss of nurturing, connection, and inspiration. He would put it more crassly; dude you need a good roll in the hay.
I must admit The Cranky Muse has a point. I like to think of myself as independent and whole, yet I’d be lying to say I don’t miss the company of a woman, especially certain female charms like kissing, hugging, and other forms of intimacy. TCM would be more direct and say I’m simply missing sex. While true, I also miss the companionship of a woman to share the journey and range of life experiences. A good relationship reflects and draws out more of our being; many aspects that have gone fallow in the years of being single. Intimacy is a wonderful gateway to love, learning, and growth.
Ode to a Lonely Lover
they say Virginia is for lovers
yet I’ve not seen her covers
why are the gifts so few
when I’m with you
you possess a certain zeal
dripping with sex appeal
a master of the tease
would you love me please
