without support

failure to cope

silent footfalls hushingly plead

seeks small comfort, a gentle touch

no answers come in time of need

asking nothing expects too much.


oceans of passion well up from the depth

with no outlet nor even time to sigh

perhaps relief came while i slept,

but life just keeps on passing by.


exhaustion flows instead of blood

shoulders crushed holding back tides

beyond the wall a greater flood

the limits of what a soul abides.


Author's Notes/Comments: 

sometimes i feel like there must be a better way to live, as if western civilization has created a sorry substitute for a real human life.
