Sing Me Home

Sing Me Home

Journal Entry

It feels as though
I won't
Make it to the end.
I am wracked
With melancholy
My soul
is restless
And flat
Slightly apart
It's like a circus act
About to go horribly wrong
How far is the fall
My head is filled
With voices
Angry shouting
Soft cajoling
And still
I just want you
To sing me home

Spring Tulips

"Spring has returned. The earth is like a child that knows poems." ~ Rainer Maria Rilke
