don’t try

the black and white of subtleties

red lines removing hopes and dreams

misunderstood simplicities of

misrepresented symbolism

i try i try to enunciate

by typing typing punctuating

the message missing hesitating

overlooked by those who read

i try still try to say some things

the things that i am wont to say

but they’re so small

they’re nothing deep

i write them while

i’m wide awake

i try to make some sense

but sense is lost in my unrest

dig deeper now and deeper still

the treasure lies so far uphill

where i left it yours to find

a bit’s required: mine mine mine

but i believe it’s certain clearly

something held to me so dearly

belief in language deeper meaning

although today it seems unfeeling

but i’ll keep reaching reaching trying

begging for more

my fists are pounding

at unlocked doors
