Within Me


For once –
I no longer loiter sidewalks
of hopelessness
around endless circles;
nor starve for happiness
among scraps of pottery
but rather within future –
is where it lies;

for love’s tragedy has departed
on a bittersweet note
yet one of content
as the search for survival ends,

because it’s within me –
as it has been all along.

Yet oblivion always seemed to tussle
my thoughts
as mind overrode heart,

until it became but a
valuable lesson.

“Follow your heart,
never give up while accepting what is;
look beyond idealism to discover truth;
always hold onto that dream,
never let it flee from your grasp
yet do not cling to it for life.”

It was today I captured that glimpse
through rose-colored glasses
among absence,
ripened yet



You’re a loose web, worn,
fastened to the curved moon;
yet I still wish
upon you
within my loneliest hours
my greatest weakness,

my defeat.

You snare my heart,
and like thunder
of a retreating storm,
I hang from sacred memories
with hope for a better tomorrow
where wasps are devoured at dawn
as canaries nestle within,

for you are all I wish to ever

dream of.
