Surfacing Life’s Undertow


When hearts are woven with cracks,
Reason and sanity seem the first to go.

Not much gets etched,
On a smooth surface.

Slippery memories,
Sliding off the edges.

Nothing lasts forever,
No warning signs, and it’s over.

Meaningless relationships,
Having no place in life.

When smiles fade into a blank slate,
Pleasure: a word eyes can’t communicate.

Looking for answers,
Where there are none.

Maybe I’m on the wrong side,
Of the universe.

Maybe I over analyze simple things,
Hoping for a better or worse outcome…

But, for me, surface relationships,
Now… cease not to be important.
