Done is an understatement, a word too typical and overly overused to apply
I’m underwater, beneath, low, abyss and chasms
I’m going fast with my head out the window, blown away and unable to breath
I can breath; yet and cannot catch my breath
And what I am forced, commanded, chastened to believe tastes horrible
I am healing; I am broken and unrepairable
I am capable of happiness and only capable of walking away from it
I am a fool. A fool who chooses trusts and chooses distrust.
I am trusting of the distrustful and believing in the beguiling
I’m no fool. I see behind the curtain and stare at its operator and ask
“Is there more?”
I walk beaten paths and mossy walkways
I climb forbidden trees and stare at their fruit
I bite into its produce and I never swallow
And nothing, nothing, ever taste as sweet after that
I can’t; I can’t, I won’t, I shall not
I am incapable of happiness. I am logic and emotion. I am wisdom and feelings
I am attracted to the tangible and attached to the intangible
I am not God. I am not god.
I give and I take away. Myself. By, myself. For someone else.
I shall not want. And I have not found. And I will not see.
I am rock and hard place. I am left and right. I am lost and found.
I am the fork in the road. I don’t choose. I just sit. Both paths are circles
I am circular. I am obtuse and acute. I’m a square. I’m out of shape.
What the hell am I…
I am depression and sadness, weariness and longing, tired and confused
I am life and light, I am truth and reality, I am existence and actuality
I am long and stretched, tense rope pulled with thread shown, loose and brittle
Easily broken yet not allowed to break. Porcelain by choice, iron by command
Forged against my wishes, forged for my good, forged as a gift, ready for good works
I make no choices, I make no decisions, I make nothing.
I am nothing. I am not. I am without. I am lacking.
I am made, I am created, I am supposed to and expected to
I am allowed to look. I shouldn’t look. I am not supposed to.
I and anger and hatred. Frustration and vengeance. Shaken and closed fist
I am holding on. I have to let go. I’m not supposed to let go. Letting go is selfish
Holding on is wrong. Holding on is sinful. Dont hold on. Hold on.
I am night and day, sun and moon, stars and planets
I am rambling. I am screaming. I am asking. I am yelling. I am listening.
