… can’t reach the bottom rung


Bloodred Sunset



I  h
ave reached           

outwards and in                    

I  have reached           


beyond my sin

I  can’t gather             

the strength to reach              

the bottom rung               

no use to preach   

it all seems beyond         

my futile grasp                                 

it all seems too hard       

how long will it last


we have to fall apart                

to come together            

back to start       

I do not know how                 

I feel I have nothing left           

I feel so empty…              

so bereft      

writing out

my sadness      

is all I can do       

in my blindness

writing out

my heart         

searching for you        

avoiding the dart

writing out

my heart

searching for a

solid part
