ebbs and flows of Times
and time again we aren’t
tall enough to reach the proverbially literal
while the metaphysical
sits closer much, much closer
So close and yet so far from

And We surely
Aren’t who We are looking for
Jam packed with so much congested emptiness,
I can no longer see the way out of the dark
But at least I know I’m going home
