I’m Still Here

I’m Still Here

Oh my! I’ve not written anything for about two weeks now, but I’m still around. I have a lot of changes going on in my life right now, so I’ve not been able to find so much time to maintain my online presence. But I’m hopeful that things are going to settle down over the coming weeks… and I may have something significant to announce.

On the personal front, despite a few hiccups along the way, I seem to be settling into my antidepressant meds quite well now and my sleeping patterns are close to normal. I’m back at work and feeling up to the job, which is such a relief.

My wife and I are working things out. There are issues, sure, but we’re making progress and have been getting along quite well again.

That’s all for now. I hope to back to writing more regularly soon.

Insomnia

Insomnia

Tired mind so full of thoughts;
Flock of birds come nesting.
Noise and turmoil will not stop
Though I should be resting.

Round and round and round they go,
No end to them in sight.
Like a hamster on a wheel
They run and run all night.

Here I lie awake in bed,
I’m done with counting sheep.
Wishing that my mind was still,
So desperate for sleep.

I Don’t Know What Love Is

I Don’t Know What Love Is

When I was young
I never thought
About what love was:
I didn’t need
To question.

Love was a word
I never uttered.
The emotional
Implications
Were too strong.

It was always
A thing I knew
Without words:
Beyond friendship
As one soul.

To feel that I
And another
Were so entwined,
That nothing could
Break that bond.

But now you say
I never knew
What love was.
I know it by
The empty space.
