Enclosed, Amidst the Spirit
All I ever really wanted was a place to suffer alone-
To allow the silence to carry my burden of loneliness
To a realm of indifferent commensuration-
And now that I’ve achieved such a space,
What’s next in the making of my life?
Bare essentials ground necessities, so it seems,
And said necessities, in turn, cloud one’s aim in staying grounded.
I am human, and in order for me to live I need more.
