Some Place I Never Want To Be


Here,
Right now,
Alone, without you.
This is someplace I never want to be.
Emptied,
Poured out like water,
A broken vessel,
This is someplace I never want to be.
Lost,
Blinded,
I cannot see
And this is someplace I never want to be.
Longing,
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.
Saddened,
Drowning
Without doubt
This is someplace I never want to be.
This is someplace I never want to be.

Poem of the Day

poet Oliver Wendell Holmes

Life is real, life is earnest,
And the shell is not its pen –
“Egg thou art, and egg remainest”
Was not spoken of the hen.

Art is long and Time is fleeting,
