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 reconnect

To reevaluate

To rediscover the gifts in front of you

When the world turns its back on you

Open up

And let life love you back.
