The incomprehensible acts of my attrition

 

 

Life,

is gouging out holes in me

I dont know how to fill

...

Cavenous expanses,

where life force used to rage.

...

each piece of me carved away

by the hands of time

at the whim of fate. 

...

I claw on

more determined

to live the life I want

with the things I no longer need 

tied behind me

where sentiment flails.

...

weighted down

by a useless comfort

steming from a need

in some obscure part of me

I hardly recognise

...

while still

daring to dream

the possibility

of discovering

the meaning

of my existence

or life,

or even.

the enigma of love

in the conumdrum living 

Or perhaps,

so desperately

the unsolvable longing

in my soul. 

...

Something 

...

And Still.

 

no closer,

 

I discover;

 

more 


holes


...

I Am A Deep Hole Digger

shovel full by shovel full, I arrive in similar circumstances wondering where all this depth and emptiness came from. I love a poem so verbally balanced and bookcased in layers ~allets~
