Here we all sit

here we all sit,
in lumpy cinema seats that don't recline,
and shared armrests still sticky with soda,
on the edge of our seat with boredom,
considering walking out of this movie,
for which we have paid far to much to watch.
Yet we choose to stay,
"what if it gets better?"
"maybe they will do something unexpected?"
But they won't.
We are watching the movie of our own life,
staring straight into the camera's lens,
lost in our own reflection.
As if we are watching the earth's feebles attempts
to eclipsing the moon
from the sun's point of view

What is it?

Where are we searching?
what are we seeking?
There's a hole in my whole
Thus my wholeness is leaking

Thou often when you dig
Far down in the ground
Most times you will find
What your seeking can't be found.

Some say it's in your head
Some say it's in your heart
Some find it in the end
Some have it from the start

Some open every jar
to see if they can smell it
Some talk till they are breathless
To see if they can tell it.

Some sit beneath a tree
And wait for it to come
Some seek it on a different plane
by making themselves numb.

Some open every cactus
And drink its spilling juice
Some check every egg
Laid by the golden goose.

Some will ask the shadowless
To answer all their maybes.
Some say that they have found it
in the innocence of babies.

Some have given up their search
dismounted from their lookout lurch
Are simply content with breathing and being
and seeing only what they are already seeing.

We are not in love

We are not in Love,
You and I
We have only begun our endless journey
in search of love.
Togeather we will paddle up many rivers
hike over countless mountains,
fight off discovered and nameless beasts,
all in search of our hamlet of love
where we can live as one with all that is love
until death bring us closer.

Unable to drown

The alcohol is a weight
Pulling me under
Drowning my sorrows
But my sorrows can swim under water
And now I have wet shoes
And another thing I cannot lose
Another anchor ripped from the real
One more reason to break the seal
