deaths and birthdays

vague shadows of the long past
and the not so long
torn, jagged churn muted and dark
uncatchable…untouchable

deep urgent longings
assigned to those shadows
passions with no time
nor luxury to explore

buried beneath this rock
this slide this mountain
will I ever find them
will I ever find myself

Perhaps some are tormented not to find and others are tormented to have found.

Hope all is well!

If you find them, let me know where they are.
