Shining Star

  1. The Find

    Things fall apart
    at the slightest touch
    New words cannot be found
    only the old, looping
    round and around.

    Insanity can be found
    here,
    and here.

    Pain, of course,
    everywhere.

    Reading Rilke,
    I try to breathe
    but am drowned
    in his sea of beauty.

    His sea, mind,
    not mine,
    And for the first time
    I find myself
    bitter.
