On My Mind

You know,
I wonder about you
which probably makes the title a little to easy
but the thing is,
I don’t wonder about everyone.

It is not necessarily anything to do
with romance
or pity
(both of which are good-
despite our culture ruining the first and decrying the second)
But it is unusual.

People are what matter
And this is easy to forget
But I have not forgotten you.

Preach to me preacher
For the godless comedian speaks to my pain
Preach to me preacher
For I am alone
In the midst of our people
I am alone
God’s word cuts deep
And I do not think I can bear it
Preach to me preacher
And let me be hewn asunder.

It Is Hard To Remember

Sometimes when you open up
A person doesn’t respond
(and they certainly don’t open up to you)
And you feel exposed
And vulnerable
And at least a little hurt.

Sometimes when a person opens up to you
You don’t respond
(and you have no idea what to say)
And you don’t know what to do
And you can tell
That not saying anything hurt.
