When I am reminded of my grief,
I am comforted by the knowledge
that most of the time
I remember only the good times

I know a woman
She's so beautiful
It makes me sad
She's too young
And even if she weren't
I'm too heartbroken

I want her to be happy
I don't hope.
You can only hope if you can be glad.
I can't be glad
All I can be is relieved
I'm not disappointed
If she is

Draft 2

I occasionally see a woman
Even though I don't know her name
She's so beautiful
Seeing her makes me sad
She's too young
And even if she weren't
I'm too heartbroken

I can't even be glad
hoping she's happy
I can't be glad
So all I can do is want her to be happy
And be relieved
If I'm not disappointed

Sound and light

When I was younger
I could listen to music
and keep time
with the sound waves
reaching me
from the light waves

The Beauty

The everyday
has subsumed
and hidden
the truth.
Sometimes I hear an echo
of the Beauty
buried deep within
everything we see and do.

The horror

The horror recedes into the past
even forgotten
but still horror
the horror.

Why we do what we do

We do not only signal fitness for reproduction.
We also signal fitness for social roles.


I hope this does not disturb your reverie.
Rather, I hope it blends with and expands it.


I love the me that believes the wonderful things I see are true.

Sometimes I doubt they are and feel fear.

Perfect songs

This type of song evokes a feeling
This exact song is perfect for me;
it makes me aware of what the feeling is a remembrance echo

Greetings from across the void

Is someone in there?
What are you thinking?
What does it feel like to be you?

Sacrilegious dance music

Music is sacred to me
Dancing that exists for itself rather than as part of music seems sacrilegious to me.

I look away

I look away
Sometimes to avoid seeing something unpleasant
or in disdain
Sometimes I want to look at you
but I can't
Either way
I have no choice
I look away

I'm lonely

Everybody my age is so damn old
