~questioning the sky~

Am I lacking
all that something
someone
sometime
summer gone
(marshmallows melting,
solstice stillness of something)?
Am I
waiting to hang upon it's nothingness?
it's weight - it's weight empty
It is sky there
empty
two thousand tons of empty
sitting and restless and forever
milling these questions
in a lonliness waltz - placid like desert
It is all without an echo, this emptiness
It is all without the picayune games of love and lust and life
that proceeds me
What is it that makes it all so sure?
What is it that makes him want me more -
makes him want to surrender himself into me?
Am I too ready
or too mystified by my own hesitance?
Where am I if not there inside of his mind
running into him as veins of sweet?
Where am I going if not there?
I question
this saving
this saving
this saving of me.

Very good, and I'm fairly sure I can relate.  I'm not sure what to say besides that it's good.  Who knew I could ever know NOT what to say about a poem.  (haha)

and such a lovely inquisitor I must say...

I do miss her smile, intelligence, and wit... fabulous lady.  I hope she is doing well and is happy.

Yesterday is ash, tomorrow is smoke; only today does the fire burn.
