How desperately we pray to find the copy of ourselves

uniting in marriage or promise

only to be discouraged that our One is not perfected in reflection.

We tear at Love’s face

ripping apart original designs

keeping only what fits our expectations

smearing that which disgusts us

not realizing what we kill is what we need.

“I do not want you anymore,” is what we cry

believing our One does not own precise qualities

our hearts desire.

Not until we know

there is no human that can fill our own skin

and we are born alone and walk alone and die alone

Not until we know

can we accept the gift of surface glaze

which seals the painting to protect

carefully placed brushstrokes

of fingers upon lips

that hush our frenzied hunt for another copy of us.

Not until we know

can gratitude replace loneliness.

I always say' you're never alone with a drum.
well no it wasnt actually me that said that.
The matching drumsticks did.

Great write. all the way to the end.
Read it twice so far.
Reviewed by richard cederberg 11/10/2009
People are fallible with one another, surely, but oh so progressive in the society and their pursuits. Seeking for that perfect love/relationship that will enhance all that we are and can be seems to be woven into the genetic essence of who the human race is. Without true love, life, surely, is uncompleted and empty.

I wonder, if we didn't yearn for and struggle for what we don't have, or have difficulty finding, could we still walk the path we're given and accomplish Gods will for our lives? The suffering equation is least understood. I know this from my own experiences.

I am so thankful that God does not say: "I do not want you anymore!" There is a melancholy of experience woven into this that touches the heart. One day at a time!
