Poem #18 – Those Dark Thoughts of Mine

your body weighs heavy
what made you this way?
lost between the branches
of your failing will

who stole your voice?
and kept you contained
you would sing as a bird
now you will not fly

can you trace the origin?
can you dig yourself?
out of this fever
that surrounds you

no I will not leave
no matter how you push
and shelter yourself
from loving company

if this maddened world
consumes you whole
i’ll dig another hole
right beside yours
