SOLITUDE
(11/12/05)


hello there

glad
that you could
finally
make it

some bitch
was here earlier
her name was Loneliness
but she left
as soon
as you entered
the room

you fill my world
with your presence
when I see you
I feel that nothing
is lacking
in my life

what
was I chasing
in the streets
on the highways
and down deserted
desert roads
only yesterday?

at the time
it all seemed
so important
but now
I don't
even remember
the numerous names
of the determined distractors
who were terrorizing
my thoughts
and emotions

when you are here
there is only
one name
that holds any
importance

you are one
and
I am one
in you

please
sit down
and stay
awhile
