I wrote this when I was going through a particularly tough time in my life which, thankfully, I've overcome.

Hollow inside, this gnawing
cavernous ache in my belly,
I feel an essential piece of me
has gone astray.

I think Iíve misplaced it,
like those damn car keys,
that I always seem to lose
after a long, forgetful night.

Iím running out of time as I look,
the clockís faithful arms
stretch round and round,
their limitless energy knows no bound.

Theyíre not on the hook
by the front door, my keysómissingó
missing like my feeling of acceptance.
Iím craving this absolute peace
permeating my body, pumping through my veins,
like blood, my life force
(making me whole).

This piece, this link, itís mislaid,
lost in the abyss of endless, tedium life,
work, bills, friends, living.

I desperately want it back.

Sometimes it does seem as we get wrapped up into a world of so much to do that we forget what we need to and love.
