Nerves have their purpose.
The synapses are a
warning to pay attention.
Pain is not pleasant
but it is better than
the alternative.
The continued pursuit of
numbness is a harbinger l
of ill health in the long run.

The pain is still there and
wholeness disappears
with each missing limb.

It was close.
I almost went away.
For good.

How much I have to learn.

Things are not always
what they seem.
It is just so hard to
see her so sad and
not know what to say.

But in the end
as usual
you come
through.
You always do.

How much I have to learn.

Mumble Jumble

I can understand why it is frustrating to listen to me sometimes.
The words keep coming
until they are a big confusing mass floating in the air above our heads.
I am trying to find an end point and
can’t seem to get there.

Somehow when I reach up and
take the words down
things become clearer.
I write to understand and
to be understood.
The words are a
long black line
that lead back
to the beginning
of me.
They are my memory.
