Chord Change

something must break, and soon
I sense it in your hands

I feel you, as if I were
your last guitar

and you have one instant only
to stretch your fingers, crazily
for a new chord
throwing the old aside

it is this
moment of destruction
that I live for

the mad thin scream of the strings
as your fingertips slide
holding on, cracking the whip
to shatter their world

as always, the sound
of something thrown down, with all your soul
and something found

atop the waterfall, the wild new flow
no-one could have predicted
and yet we reached for it

Lorraine--I love your comment--and you mention sadness--I hope the feeling is one of carrying you through that sadness into joy--because that is where we are headed if we follow our heart where it leads (although it may be a long journey!)

I don't know if I can last that long...I don't know how to live with people. They lie, they hurt me, they're cutting my medication for agoraphobia and social phobia. It's not the right time...not when I'm surrounded by people ...I just want to outlive my cats, they wouldn't survive without me, I love them so much and they feel it. and after Sammi's summer of horror I will never ever let her live through anything like that again. I must find a house. somewhere I can not my life with all these around me in an apt building......I don't know where to go, I don't know what to do, I don't belong anymore, no one can help me and those that could just don't...gosh I'm sorry that just came out, with Love always, just mex
