Some Place I Never Want To Be

Right now,
Alone, without you.
This is someplace I never want to be.
Poured out like water,
A broken vessel,
This is someplace I never want to be.
I cannot see
And this is someplace I never want to be.
Parched and dry,
Thirsting for your waters
This is somplace I never want to be.
Broken, busted apart
Useless without you,
You complete me
And this is somplace I never want to be.
Without doubt
This is someplace I never want to be.
This is someplace I never want to be.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
