About 2007

You had the answer to the question
I didn't know I had -
The revelation of a secret
I wasn't trying to reveal.
In my imagination's wildest reaches
I could have never conceived of you.
My nonexistent wish
came unbelievably true.

2007 isn't over yet - but so far, it's been pretty good.

running in place (how i'm feeling right now)

i feel like
i'm running in place
running a race
against myself
and i'm destined for the last place
defeated before i even begin
fighting the war
but the war continues with no end
and my enemy will win -
yet my enemy is me
and just can't see
why i keep entrenching myself in misery -
making progress but no motion
and now i'm fraught with emotion
i am my judge and my jury
and my judgment of me
keeps me stuck in my fury
and thus I'm frustratingly
running, out of breath,
but yet, standing still.
