alone and adrift


everythings more scarey when youre
alone and adrift
i'm not a sunken ship

Inertia and widened with fear
Frustration unceasing
Desire always so stubborn

Passion in the wilderness
Is useless, raging at all that has happened
Let go of the past and embrace today

As empty as it is
Sick of waiting for things
To come into being where are they?

And are they even worth the wait?
What is important?
The pursuit of wisdom?

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
