Pandora’s Box

it’s been a while
I know that it has
the words are there
they just lack pizazz

I poke and prod
twist and turn
shaping them all
so they will burn

instead they fizzle
the smoke rises tall
the demise of Phoebe
oh no, will she fall?

the query lingers
stirring a buzz
has she lost it?
her mind full of fuzz

to help ease your mind
I’ll try to convey
that the words still smolder
though I’ve become quite blasè

all I need is a spark
to start a new blaze
a twinkling of hope
moving passed this phase

an explosion of idioms
they will burst free
wouldn’t you know..
a whole new me!!
