Denied the colors
Of life’s continual circle
Trapped in a world
Of monotone grey

Diminishing life’s quality
Powerless to the rage
Prisoner of pain
No resolution
No peace

Senses once shrouded
By the fog of numbness
Deadened emotions
Now acutely sharpened

Heightened awareness
Of those deeper needs

On too many levels

Needing an anchor
In the vortex of chaos
Spiraling continuous
Out of control

Spirit screaming
For sustenance
For nurturing

Heart weeping
When confronting
Countless issues

Seeing so clearly
What she wants
What she needs

So close
She can see it
Almost barely touch it

But just as
The stars
That fill the
Night sky

She reaches
To find
Its light years
