who do i turn to?
who do i turn to in times of empty solace?
the light of my possessions is barely warm.
i need a furnace.
i need a glow to feed me,
not tokens and lint.

what do i turn to?
what do i turn to when i need the most help?
i'm letting go of my health -- in effect
dropping out.
i dropped so many lives i can't see the feeling
of kneeling in the moss and wetness, night sealing
my bones.
anymore.

i want to feel well.
but i'm lost and i don't want the light's glare
reminding me why i shouldn't stare too hard.
too many details swarming at me,
all big lines, old colors,
lost feelings given to ancient lust.

i'm sick of this.
why can't i break free of this?
what did i miss that won't let me resist making a fist in place of mist --
yes, gentle subtle mist covering slow growing leaves and needles,
caressing the bark and giving color to the dark.

i relate to these feelings way more than I'd like to...*sigh*
always grateful for the poetry to purge some of it...you too? yes, i know.
butterfly slippers has a pair of strong shoulders...or is that wings...*smile*
take care of you, please

I understand this poem... Look within yourself and upward, you're sure to find someone...

 Time flies? Say it not so, time stays we go.

Cuddlez,
Yeah, my reflection. Life's never that easy, and I'm glad.

S'en,
Now you know why I didn't name my poem "turn" or "turn, turn, turn" or "one of my turns." "Too many bad memories." -Moe
