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 Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
