So Very Much








I knocked on the sky today,

and got an echo.



Did I ever tell you guys

that I've never even met

my soul?



I don't even know

if it likes poetry or not,

let alone

deep fried pickles.



Or if like me

it also,

is afraid of the light.



Funny how people

are so afraid of dying

its really not all that rough though,

hell,

I've done it a million times

already,

this month alone.



Yesterday,

I found a bunch of words

trapped in a blue bottle

so I popped the cork and took

a huge swig,

too big in fact,

right now they're dribbling

down my chin.



I've never had a problem

helping people

and then expecting anything

back in return.



I've always felt that the second

you expect something back

it no longer becomes,

a gift,

it is now a job for payment,

of services rendered.



I guess its just in my nature.



What a nice guy I am,

huh?



I'm starting to think not so much,

that maybe all along it was just a

guise though,

this,

never needing anyone

for anything,

so that people wouldn't realize

just how needy,

I actually am.



They say that not admitting it,

is one step,

before the first one.



Oh yeah,

and I think I need a stroll,

again.



You know, to get some

fresh error.



My hairhas been too neat lately anyway,

and my eyes,

their so wet

everything is starting too become

too clear.



I just need to lighten my head

a little,

it seems like its full of feathers,

made of lead.



Perhaps,

I'll sit with a tree

and maybe, have a talk with a river,

or whittle down a cloud

into a handful

of wind.



It's been awhile since I've been

adrift.



The last time I left here

I was gone for

two years.



but worry not,

please.



Last time

I didn't have,

an everything,

to come back too.



Plus,

how can one ever get

found,

if they never,

are lost?



And remember,

you can never be lost

if you don't have some kind

of underlying sense,

of where home is

or at least,

where you want it to be.



It's just that I've got some,

sorting out to do.



Hell, its all gone by so fast,

I've still got chapters of my life,

I haven't even

read yet.



I'll be back.



I'll be back because,

I want to walk in the rain, not just, get wet.



So please,

don't be sad.



Yes,

we're two shores

of the same ocean,

but,

our waves always

will meet in the middle dream

of closed eyes.



Its just that my heart came

without any instructions

and so,

I just need to figure out

what's wrong with it,

why it keeps feeling

like its going to

explode

and then collapse

into some kind of

finale

of beginning.



Not to mention,

I'm tired of living in the dark

of my own shadow.



I have to find this thing

called courage

to finally be able to give

myself

into the new world

of discovery

I've found.



And yet,

maybe it is our own doubts

and confusion

that mark what it means

to be human.



Hey guys, help yourself to the brew

in my fridge,

no use good suds going to waste

right?



Oh yeah,

and do me a, huge favor

will you?



Whether I'm gone for five minutes,

or five lifetimes

be nice to my cat

and throw him a scrap now and again

okay?



Oh scratch that last part,

He's not even real.



Maybe that's why me and him

always got along so well

because in so many ways,

neither am I.



I'll say one thing though,

it sure is nice to still be able to

surprise yourself,

by finally being able to admit,

I need you,

I need you,

how so very much

my love,

I need you.

Do that, dear Richy, and you will not need to go away anymore. And not be in need of anything at all. Trees and rivers and clouds will share with you the gift of deep consciousness, of love.

This is a very captivating write, as all of your works. I love your busy mind. And your poetic sensitivity.

Love and joy!

The title is perfect for saying how I like this. *S*

I think I got lost in some of the passages... you've put into words feelings I thought were indescribable... so I'm just nodding and mumbling "yeah"... and reading again. *S* Wonderful!!!

Margy sweet dear, have I ever told you how much
I truly appreciate you?

As often as I might convey that to you, I just hope you know how sincere my esteem genuinely is.

Suthern dear what a gem you are!
Oh and don't worry, when I read my own stuff, I usually mumble too, like what the heck is that supposed to mean ha.

Thanks a ton guys!
