Jeff Bresee

(10/29/1970 / Salt Lake City)


Much time I now spend, watching

Watching as others pass by, living

Living their lives

I watch not for care of wanting to know them

Or even so as to learn from what they do and say

I simply watch…and wonder

Wondering why. Why do I feel this way

Wondering how. How have I come to this point

Wondering when. When can I ever hope to feel again

As I watch, I remember

Remember what it was like…

To feel as they feel

To laugh as they laugh

To cry as they cry

To hope as they hope

To hurt as they hurt

To love, to hate, to long, to fear, to yearn…to rejoice…to live

But such is all that I have…memories

Memories which flow before my mind’s eye

Even as the people flow before my gaze

And I, I sit quietly in the shadow…

And wonder

…Jeff Bresee

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
