Image for the poem To love again

To love again

the plain goes no forever  
as far as the mind can see  
lifeless, barren, grey  
stretches to eternity  
built on the denial of humanity  
sacrificed love and compassion  
hiding my failures and sin  
I am drawn here  
seeking solace in the grey  
seeking to escape the pain  
of living day to day  
where no one can hear  
the screaming of my soul  
as wolves of my making  
rip the flesh from my bones  
driving me to my knees  
feasting on my sins  
and the coldness of my heart  
hating people more than loving me  
shutting out pain and suffering  
shutting out humanity  
welcoming the pain  
crying tears of exaltation  
as the agony purifies my soul  
so I can feel again  
the raw nerve of living  
vibrating to the sound of creation  
so I can  
love  
again
