personal, poetry, prose


I’m not the only one,

I tell myself

To be human is to be


Is it not?

Surely others find

That words and


Evade them

When any opportunity


Every conversation

A violation

And the saving grace

Of our existence

You’ll never know

If there are others

It transpires that

We all are trapped up in ourselves

Too fearful even

To share

With others

Who could lighten, help carry

The load
