I Am Loved


Sometimes I need to go into the darkness
To feel safe from the heartless
No one notices you when it's pitch black
In the dark you are able to stay intact
And it's okay to feel lost in the gloom
Of that obscure room
Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever find my place
It's so easy for me to feel out-of-date
So tired
So expired
Sometimes I want to fall asleep and never again wake
Like I just want to succumb to that dull ache
But I won't do that
Cause I've got people who love me and that's a fact
So I'll stay here for them
As far as I can tell they are my main reason to live
I am loved

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
