similarities

i wonder if i am different
i wonder if i am the same
                                               and somehow
                                               i am scared of both.

lost

we are all castaways
robinson crusoes
lost
in this vast universe
alone
in the darkness of the night
abandoned
by the one we call God.

i can feel

         the earth

                  rumbling

                           underneath

                                   the stony steps

                                                 and trickling

                                                              waterfalls –

                                                                        a poignant reminder

                                                                        of what is really ours.

thoughts

demons

These demons never leave
they have made their fires
at the back of my mind,
fueled by your words,
and my thoughts,
until I am razed to the ground,
ashes and dust scattered.
