Literature Text

Hungrier I am for love

less interested I become

with the trails you set

in sparkly crumbs.


Give me

warmth,

reciprocity,

intention backed action.

Nothing to hide.

Nothing to tolerate.

Tell me.


You crave my expansion?

I create from acceptance.

I create in vast open spaces.


In this box

I decay

into carrion.


When sensitivity is a curse;

what happens to pain?

What of all those times

we stood up howling;

fell asleep weeping?


What happens to joy;

when tears are scorned?

Or else weaponized;

minimised or dramatized?


I want to reform as soft

despite the prickly world.

My own spikes -

always in the way.


See the exhaustion;

from wishing so hard

through rain and shine

for deep connection.


Hear the the trials and errors endured

away from the safe folds of solitude.


Have mercy; I am trying.

Lead me always

again to my tribe.

This is beautiful, and worth reading several times (as with all good poetry).

I think I understand you.. I also feel too sensitive to the world and to the people, unable to make a connection at a deep level because most people to me seem like they are selfish and want to take advantage. An ego-less connection - does it truly exist?

It might not exist yet, but we are good at making our dreams come true. 💜

You don't seem to post often, Jack,

but when you do, it's generally

excellent, like this one. :) pip
