It's All Your Fault

That I know this behavior at all well is discouraging since I want to reach some form of spiritual maturity.


Perhaps in the next life. But as I have written before, in an argument with God I got myself into this. This is a life not exactly in the main track He had planned for me but is instead a life where I am engaged in proving a point. I am in a life He has permitted me. I suppose I am using up my slack time. Oh well.

It's All Your Fault
(I Need You, I Need You, I Love You)

If you had no light
I would fall short of myself
in uncertainty
and my anxious need.

I would blame the world again.

I would lay down hard
on the dust bin pile
and allow my soul to puff
out my sides like spores,
say it serves you right
that I deflate before you.

See what your dark does,
what you make me do?!

  1. I loved this poem.
    And the image was priceless. I should post it at my department meetings.

    1. I have no real idea what "love this poem" can mean but I sure do value you as a blog friend and am grateful you relate to my work. I like it that I am this far behind in posting my poetry because I have no real idea what I was talking about back in 2010, basically four years ago. heh.


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
