I am a beginning

I am no longer new and shiny,

The gloss has worn off from wear and tear,

I sink to the bottom of the deck,

To sit among the others who are not worthy.


Betrayal, Jealousy, Anger

A few emotions that are cancer to the heart,

A dark cloud that encompasses your soul,

Leading you to feel discarded in a hole.


It’s hard to shake a feeling so strong,

A loss of one’s worth is destructive,

Although, it can take a single good thought,

A prick of a needle to deflate the balloon.


It takes some remembering,

A jolt of electricity to kick start the mind,

To rescue the heart that is badly beaten,

Pull it up from beyond and nurse it slowly.


The end is as important as the beginning,

A person’s life sets off in directions by catalysts,

Beginnings of journeys can change a person’s life,

Webs interconnect from heart to heart.


I am a catalyst.

The first domino to fall,

I started a person’s major life journey,

My part is just now over.

Remember the sunset.

This line walks through my head.

A prayer?

A plea?


Damn, you make things so hard.

Hard to move,

Hard to see,

Everything just hard.


I’ve lost feeling,

intermittent joy,

my poetry is lifeless,

no great written epiphanies.


I sit

in a great dark room,

indian style,

hands in my lap.


Visitors don’t come and go,

food does not slide under the door,

just me and the silence,

the sunset painted on the walls.
