Despair overwhelms me
My heart is shriveling
The hole in my center grows larger
I embody despair
I am careening toward emptiness and loneliness with no way to stop

I am me
I only see me
Me is all I want and feel
What more is there than me?

You are on the other side
You are far away – an ocean separates us
What do you matter?
You are not me, yet we are the same

Two me’s can never equal an us
Two me’s are just two me’s
There is no form of joining me
Me is destined to be alone, empty

Where am I without you?
Am I even me?

Going Green

•January 2, 2009 • Leave a Comment

I sleep and sleep and sleep
Yet I wake with no energy.
I lie about and rest
Only to find myself exhausted;
When I am on vacation,
I find no pleasure in having nothing to do.

Work is my elixir
Breathing hard, my reason to be.
Expending my energy only gives me more.
How can I ever go green?

Moving backward into the future

Are we not doomed to have history repeat itself?

Once we make that one mistake, it will keep coming back
Repeating itself over and over until in the end
We realize our life was just one big cycle of mistakes.

Circles have no beginning and no end.

The future holds a vision of hope for us
Until we fall in the relentless groove of repetitiveness
Where no matter how we try to escape it
Only a scratch will make the needle jump
And scratching certain itches ruins our effort.

Can’t we learn to love ourselves?

Our mistakes are ultimately driven by our lack of love
Not for others, but for ourselves.
We have to start spreading that love within
Before we can spread it to the world.

Love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another. John 13:34-35

Crying in the pool

•August 23, 2008 • Leave a Comment

I’m crying in the pool

I’m crying in the pool

What am I doing?
I’m crying in the pool
Where am I going?
I’m crying in the pool
Why am I crying?
I’m crying in the pool
I’ve lost all reason
I’m crying in the pool

This is what I’m thinking as…
I’m crying in the pool

No more swimming
I’m crying in the pool

She left me alone

There she sat
politely conversing
she looked this way
She turned her head
Never to return
