April 1986

 

shame

now too near a companion

 

grief

now too familiar a friend

 

my world, for a time

knocked off its spin

wildly falling

to oblivion

 

your nearness was all I craved

your nearness was all I missed

 

love

wrath

envy

 

all have had their day

 

but now the wrath is gone

I pray the envy too

so only love remains

in this hollow shell of me

 

the pride and the glory

replaced by shame and grief

a bitter trial of growing

I pray I now have passed
