Resolution

Poem By Gwen Storch

theres no word that can ever explain
no explaintion
its just a sensation
a feeling
can that be explained?
they say that there is a drug that cures it all
then give me the drug that cures this!
this
this
yearning!
this pure and total desire
and
everything
and i can't even begin
becuase my eyes fill up with tears and
i want to cry
and scream
and laugh
and throw something
all at the same time
because its not an emotion
its a want that cant be fullfilled
and desire that i will never calm
or quell
someone will speak a word
at school
at church
and my mind will wander...
wander away
across the feilds of imagination
away
i can fly here
i can do anything
everything is in reach
except for this desire
this want for
something!
what is it?
i dont even know!
my heart reaches out
grapsing for what it knows it cannot reach
will not reach
but it trys
it trys like the lonely sloth at the zoo
spending his entire day in the plastic tree
raching for the real trees around him
know the entire time he will never reach them
but still he tries!
shouldnt i try as well!
but he knows what he wants
right?
or is he simply living on instinct
should i live on instinct too?
follow my heart
but my heart leads into uncharted territory
where it is dark and shadowed
where i cannot see or hear or feel
silence
i want to experience complete and total silence
like Matt the news guy
who climed the glacier
theres nothing up there
just silence
how wonderful!
what a thought? !
no sound
no buzz
no scream
no cars
no zoom
no tick tock
tick
tock
no time
without sound
is there time?
is there time there?
on that glacier
or does it stop
even just for a second
while you hold your breath and spread your wings
and listen
to nothing
nothing
silence
thats worth listening to
thats worth hearing
thats what i want
but i want more
thats not it
thats not all of it!
adventure
love
freedom
style
grace
life!
something
a resolution...
