Love and Hate

I am love and I am hate

I keep score

A reckless mouthy mess

I draw a line in the sand

I make the rules

Cutting the fat I am a carnival

Feasting on my own delusion


Cornered by my own desires


I am wild

A seeker of idea’s

I go to crowded places and listen to music so I can be alone

I feel shivering excitement for things that are not tangible

Why did I come here?

The wind attacks the waves and steals my joy

People mingle and jostle

Wanting to be seen….

…being seen….

Do we all feel invisible?

Is that why we seek perfection?

Hoping to be a head above the rest?

By seeking the same thing do we all not blend into one?

Is this the flaw in humanity?

That we don’t enjoy our imperfections and therefore our perfect uniqueness?

I am guilty

Awash with it

I sit here fo ra reason I do not understand.

To watch?

I see everything I do not want.

This I know

I see things that are rich and beautiful

But I desire heart in it

It is candy and sadness

Give me gold seams in the earth

And geodes cracked like an egg

Faulted and raw

Give me the heart of Joni

Her eyes

And the Earth as it is.
