I've Lost Myself Again

My Dear Reader,
I ponder that,
when your eyes unwittingly
inhale the name “Michael”
in the dark room,
you fly over it
like the fastest aeronaut
to avoid more whining words of woe.

Fun and festivity travel
on the backs of holidays.
Laughter releases locked up frivolity.
Giving is the light that shines brightly,
instilling selflessness.
Yet, holidays are my demon,
a time when taking
fills my eyes and ears,
returning me, again,
to the dark room.

Terms of love and romance
flow like rivers
from a mind mired in murky
past lives.
Love found is love lost
when my thoughts
are ready for you,
Dear Reader.
My falls from love
are what I offer you,
returning me, again,
to the dark room.

You, Dear Reader, may join me
on my walks along earth’s macrocosm,
surmising that, surely, no ill
can be discovered there.
Your sun is my sweat.
Your rain is my flood.
Your snow is my Siberia.
Your robins are my vultures.
Your silver lining
is my dark cloud,
returning me, again,
to the dark room.

Spirituality comforts you
like the thoughts
of a wet dream.
Cherubs, covert beings
and arrogant thoughts of immortality
compel you to whisper
to no one.
As a matter of fact,
what matters is that matter
is the basis of all things
seen and unseen.
Matter supports us,
returning me, again,
to the dark room.

My emotions beg me
to kill this cloud
and find happiness among the species.
Yet, holidays sadden me,
love found is love lost,
the earth swallows babies
and drowns the poor
and insight perpetually
unveils the magic.
Yet, Dear Reader,
I will be here for you,
as I, again,
inhabit the dark room.
