Engaged. - Poem by Kim Dang

I want to be engaged!

I want to feel the sweat again that lies

beneath my collar, merciless.

I want to lose myself in thought

provoked by unsolved enigmas with my own

existence as the bare challenge

I want to grovel at my worst near

defeat's last morsal of redemption with nothing

but my own word to materialize what I've come

to accept as truths and lies

With a damaged throat I want to feel that pain

accompanying a scream of victory beyond

sheer agony, beyond abysmal expectations,

beyond Hope.

Shed wringed tears of joy/pain forced to the last

ounce of my All. And then some.

So again I can feel these intangible wonders of being alive.
