Tracing Channels

you search in frenzy
thru the streets,
across the cities,
for that one peg
to fill your vacant
hole to become whole
and no longer feel
that cry of loneliness
rip thru the terrifying
sleeplessness that
haunts you every night.

you have performed the
perfect script taught
you since you learned
to listen to that very
first rule that tatooed
itself as a reminder in the
soft pink of your young mind-
the indelible words
running in your loneliness
like a 33 1/3 vinyl recording
stuck on repetition because
of that one word - why?
dug in deep into the groove
like a dam preventing the flow.

you must find the answer
for if you don't you'll
swear to your very soul
that the reasons for your
own life have been so reduced
that each breath of your lungs
produces fumes of disgust...
each beat of your heart
resonates as a warning signal
that your life shall not resume...

but you eventually, after
a long and vengeful battle,
come to the realization that
the desperation was a duststorm
that blew remants of the
past into your puffed eyes
and you splash cold water
upon your face and laugh
at the person that has just
washed themselves down
the drain of disbelief.

you smile at your return
and feel at one with life
as that gapping hole,
now fully engorged, leaves
you in a state of satisfaction.

contentment is elusive
a cyclical romp thru years
of trying to understand the world...yourself
the hours reflecting, the analysis
in the end, there are Ups and Downs
and the best we can do is try to minimize the downs
as we work on our empathy
