This is Not When Lives Fall Apart



This is not the kind of heartache lovers feel
When lives fall apart,
but it is heartache I feel when
I’m wrong

and there is nothing I can do to make it right.

This is not the kind of love that moves mountains
when lives fall apart,
but it is love I feel when
I call out to my insides

and the heart knows it should want only what it can have.




Most people are lost

for words, 

me? I am lost

without them. 

A babygirl loses 

her doll

for the first time,

yet she is the one that feels lost. 

I lose myself 

in the shallow world, 

work, friends, life at the speed of light,

and my poetry winds down a road


it takes alien turns and 

twists around my neck

like an infant choking on an umbilical cord.
