my muse speaks to me in Japanese (which I don't speak)

my muse

speaks

to me

in Japanese

which I don't speak

 

it's caused

a strain

on

the whole relationship

 

and her tone

isn't soothing

or comforting

or inspiring

 

it's accusatory

like the tone

she'd used

if I ran a stop sign

and t-boned her

 

but it's all in Japanese

which I don't understand

 

it's a bad situation

my muse

speaks

to me

in Japanese

which I don't speak

 

it's put

a strain

on

the whole

relationship

 

and her tone

isn't soothing

or comforting

or inspiring

 

it's accusatory

like

I just ran

a stop sign

and t-boned

her new civic

 

but it's all in Japanese

which I don't understand

 

it's a bad situation

 

my therapist

tells me

I need to listen

to her

 

I tell him

I can't do anything

but listen

she's always

jabbering in Japanese

at all hours

of the day and night

 

I'm

losing sleep

and

can't function

anymore

with

my muse

constantly chattering

in a foreign language

I don't understand

 

He asks

if I've

thought about

learning Japanese

 

I tell him

no

why should I

have to learn Japanese

she's MY muse

SHE needs

to speak

to ME

in MY language

 

he says

maybe

you don't understand

the purpose

of a muse

 

I tell him

he's the one

who doesn't

understand

 

I bet him

5 free sessions

that if I

bring her in

he'll toss her out

before the hours up

 

I win

our bet

and he

takes her on

as a patient

because

apparently

she has

some issues

as well

 

which is

fine

but

hasn't really

helped me

 

my muse

speaks

to me

in Japanese

which I don't speak

 

it's a bad situation
