Draw Near

by John Harder

Awakening in the middle of this dysfunctional night
to play the role of death and destruction
Hear my cry. Be my shelter. Rest in this. Rest
In this, place your heart
There's no defeat. No deceit
You offer a whole loaf. I only take a crumb
and pretend I'm full.
A thousand hearts. A million broken strands of string
What's this all about? What's the point of this?
I aim and I miss.


Author's Note: This is a result of looking blankly into my screen thinking things that make no sense.

as jumbled as this may have felt to write... it makes perfect sense to me

Well, it is, as a matter of fact, it thinks, based on the associations, external or with the thoughts. We are just carried away. Meaninglessly. Consuming precious energies. Well said.
