I wrote this in June 2006, but I can relate to it still today. It’s called “Re”.
The only thing you can do
Believe in the idea that there is someone else who will love you.
Staring into empty space
Occupying dead air with glazed over eyes
Don’t expect those around you to be too impressed
Your personality is absorbed by transient, hungry thoughts that devour your full attention
No room for living in the moment
Unless you let go of these thoughts, you’ll be forever unavailable
Don’t check out just yet
Give it time
All you need is time
To rediscover the gifts in front of you
When the world turns its back on you
And let life love you back.
