Bob Dylan Prayer (An Original Poem)

http://i.imgsafe.org/473c0debc7.jpeg

I was down on my knees looking for something
Clawing for inspiration with my hands full of nothing
No higher power to call on, what can I do?
So Robert Zimmerman, I’m calling on you.
Oh my dear Bobby, can you lead me higher
Can you deliver me to safety from atop this high wire
Can you help plant the seeds in hope they will grow
I’m praying to you Dylan but you’ll never know.

I’m at the bar drinking whiskey the way that it should be
A bottle and a shot glass and drunken old me
I stand and I stagger too stubborn to fall
But never too stubborn to replay the worst of it all
I grab my pen to write some but I’m out of ink
Impossible you say but not as much as you think
I sit at the computer but the battery’s dead
And the power is out my opus is stuck in my head
I yell out in anguish hey Dylan where are you
You say nothing back as I expected you to

I fall to my knees and I start to pray
A prayer that Bob Dylan will have something to say.
I restlessly sleep and restlessly awakened
Dreams of people from yesteryear that I have forsaken
They haunt me and taunt me and make me remember
I was as cold in August as I am in December
Put the coffee on and get on your day
I cannot miss frustration if it won’t go away
I put on some music and what do you know
Bob Dylan is speaking from Desolation Row

The people that he mentions, yes I know them they’re quite lame
Because I am one of them, just a pawn in his game
Yes I know I’m stealing Mr. Zimmerman’s words
It might be the only way that I'm ever heard
So Bobby Dylan hit me with those eyes
Tell me I'm useless, tell I am despised
It’s no matter to me I’ll continue to say
A prayer to Bob Dylan at the end of my day
Oh Bobby Dylan what have I done
You’ve given up on my just like everyone

Why have you forsaken me I really want to know
I didn’t boo you in England those many years ago
I never asked you questions that made you shake you head
I wasn’t the motorcycle that almost left you dead
I wasn’t taking you time I didn’t get in your way
I didn’t tell you the music I thought you should play
You know that I need you yet you’re not around
I need your words but I don’t hear a sound
I’m not discouraged well not much anyway
To you Robert Zimmerman I’ll continue to pray
To you Bob Dylan I’ll continue to pray
