Oh my, oh my, oh my
 1
I woke today
 2
with an ache like fire
 3
split between the fuel of my ribs
 4
calling out to breathe shallow
 5
from the pipe of an open mind
 6
so I might forget pain for only a moment
 7
and remember youth, lust, passion,
 8
commitment, friends
 9
long gone
 10
down their own roads
 11
whose foraged paths
 12
I often admire
 13
and envy.
 14
 
 
yes today I woke
 15
to do nothing if not move
 16
and listen to music,
 17
think of the arts-
 18
the science- the mystery
 19
of the cosmos
 20
and unending questions
 21
they pose,
 22
enigmatic and obvious,
 23
like poetry of the resting souls
 24
and retired minds.
 25
 
 
today I realized I must heal
 26
and let these cuts, cracks, holes
 27
close, mend, before I test
 28
myself again,
 29
but instead for now
 30
share these broken sentences
 31
with anyone with whom
 32
I could possibly resonate
 33
when I implore them
 34
to think
 35
out loud, and speak out
 36
with argument, wit,
 37
and wisdom.
 38
 
 
today I heard a combination of sounds
 39
just right,
 40
that made me smile
 41
through the glum
 42
glued to my face,
 43
whose tendrils are toughened
 44
but whose end I can sense
 45
if I focus and listen closely
 46
to all those who pray for me,
 47
and give them my
 48
absolutely, singular goal
 49
driven, utter thanks,
 50
and maybe, if only for once,
 51
let them see me succeed
 52
and believe me
 53
because I'm known for my honesty.
 54
 
 
Yes today I got stoned
 55
by the fabric of life
 56
and fearless love for self:
 57
enough to love others.
 58
 
 
Today I am possibly better
 59
than yesterday,
 60
and open to make something new,
 61
leaving the recycled head-storms
 62
behind.
