Cycles

Posted on Updated on

again
concluding the cycle at the same juncture
of sadness
with him
it always ends there

when not even the illusion
of hope
can be sustained
I finally disengage
again
but even with distance
the sadness remains

A Whole Life In A Second

Posted on Updated on

 

For a second I was turned around

and in my confusion started walking

in the direction I was just coming from

For a second I was re-evaluating the validity

of insights already received

For little more than a second I was considering

if conforming was really such a bad thing

if maybe I could fit in that box

if I just sacrificed myself a little

crushed myself smaller

lobotomized myself easier

then maybe I could fit

During that second my spirit started crying

the world became too loud

and I was reminded of everything that love shouldn’t be

It only took a second

to live through several versions of life

and to choose the one

where my spirit doesn’t cry

 

A Lesson Learned

Posted on Updated on

there were signs of warning

chances to stop

turn around

choose a different path

none of them went unnoticed

all of them was negotiated

then justified

and disregarded

until all there was left

was a lesson learned

and an intention to do better

next time
