Never Still

Image

I am not enough everywhere

here and here and here

but there and now and only me

and all and none and it’s all me

and why can’t I be everywhere?

falling short, falling, falling

losing time, letting all of you down,

down, running all my days, running

in my sleep, no finish line, no

victory tape, no end, only longer

lists, more things missed

lost beneath time spent, spent lost

a thousand ways but still not enough

still

never still

never

  1. Ugh, this socked me in the stomach. Nailed that feeling of deep hopelessness I was feeling until very recently. Thx for posting. Reminds me I’m not alone on this road. Beautifully written!
