Collecting Nothing

I waste time
wishing I could go
back and collect
wasted moments spent
waiting for something
that never came,
or ended too fast,
or just wasn’t enough.
And the absurdity of it all,
wasting time over
wasted time, collecting nothing
upon nothing to fill a hole
where nothing lives, is the only way
to assure that nothing
will leave me
empty again.

The Outside Doesn’t Match The In

Look
at these worlds
bursting
inside my head,
these words
burning
beneath my tongue.
Quickly
whisper me
your secrets and I
will build beauty
from your pain
as if I was
a craftsman,
an artist,
something
more than
a lying fool.
