misunderstood
misunderstood,
unappreciated,
neglected-
excuses found
for tomorrow

a voice sings
a voice sings out
a dog's name in the dark-
blank sheet of paper

staring ahead
staring ahead
at someone else's cart
in line-
I know what I have
...what do I need?

bringing a certain sadness-
hope washed away

telling someone
telling someone
about something I did
30 years ago-
can't remember what
I ate last night

my thoughts drift up
my thoughts drift up
the hills, knowing they
will never return-
left, though, with spring,
the one I wanted

I'm now 43
I'm now 43-
starting tomorrow,
I'll dread 44

I look into you
I look into you,
seeing what others don't-
and won't

under the park bench-
she forgets my name

I've known you
I've known you
longer than I knew her...
mother drifts away

after a day
after a day
of 13 hours of work
in crowds of people,
I fall into bed
still talking.... to myself

caught off guard
caught off guard,
my senses, by the scent
of flowers-
knowing I'd hear from you,
but surprised each time...

your eyes
youreyes
your eyes
look deeply into mine
and time stops...
erasing the past,
no need for a future

she hides in the clouds
she hides in the clouds
again, like so many times,
leaving me, wanting
rain to wash off my sadness-
knowing it will return

ignoring them
ignoring them,
the river boat calls, as I
swim back decades
to see if you're still there-
I found your poem
