I am a freshly humbled man Who now knows pain and death do not equate As pain helps measure out the span Leading to every inert fate... And I would live pain free if I could But that was never meant to be Since flesh and nerve are not like wood But the holy grail of agony.
And so I bid my pride adieu To quickly trade it for relief From whatever living threatens anew In our broad avenues of grief,

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. ...live in the question.” Rilke
Yes Mr. Rilke, but questions pelt me as a summer rain, each a large drop of water striking my skin with a sting. Where do we come from? Where do we go when we die? Why must we die? Why do we love? Who will we love? Why must all that is beautiful fade?
I live in the warm wetness of all of these questions and many more. They tumble within my head as all of me writhes in passion to grasp at desires that well up from...

I bought that shirt five years ago or so, maybe longer, who knows? I'm sure it's only a Primark label; why would I have gone elsewhere to spend more?! ...
How many of us have gone through the process of learning, how powerful some situations can change your life. For have you ever gone through a traumatic event in your life, as you feel as though you are drowning in a world of no escape.

FEELING DEFEATED I feel like I was just dumped Weighed, measured & rejected Unfriended & discarded It was so unexpected My heart's broken into pieces My love has been deleted Feels like I wasn't good enough I'm completely defeated I don't want to leave my room Don't want to leave my bed I simply cannot find the strength I wish that I were dead I had 41 years of happiness And now it is all gone How could something felt so right Turn out to be so wrong My heart's broken into pieces My love has been...
