When I Wake

When I Wake


When I wake early morning,

and say farewell to the night

I put scraps of dream to music,

to see if they’ll take flight


The loved, lost, the lusted after,

to parties whom I owe

I confess my debts to the void,

when I’m heavy like wet snow


Enemies, friends, charlatans,

the faces I know well

Intersects at points,

where all have tasted hell


Aging; perhaps regressing,

hoping humanity all the same

Antidotes for our suffering,

requiem for our self-blame


Do not fathom fairness,

answers lay not in words

You’ve touched alpha and omega,

but see only her blur


Peace and Love
