Am I Still Here


Am I Still Here

So, I've lost it again
that grip in my heart
that pull in my soul
that scope in my mind
that sees only
feels only
wants only
one

I had it once
long ago
when I cried through my
laughed through my
bled through my
pen

Later, yet again,
when I danced on the
sang on the
became more on the
stage

Once more, so close behind me,
when I was full as I
worked out my
climbed up to my
nurtured my
self

Now I am empty
I can't find my way back
not to the things that I craved
but to the act of desiring,
the sense of focusing
the passion
