Looking

© Jeffrey Hellman 1991

 

 

Looking at myself

Through eyes I set aside

Revealing via patterns

becoming clearly defined

 

No more afraid of meanings

In past actions must reside

Humor lest a tumor

Be defined inside my mind

 

Growing up surrounded

Feeling all alone

Love's a piece of heaven

It's wake a deeper hole

 

Disaster heed your master

From this world you fly

Laughter's what comes after

Let the dancer see the light

 

Lonely hours of moments

How do you do your time

Kick the fist amidst my ribs

Thrust against the tide

 

Waves of scattered feelings

Balance and collide

Seeking plans with meaning

That alone I can't devise

 

The truth I seek

Hides in between the air

Communication is the link

That plucks it from its lair
