What Is Gone



I am so full of hate
for everything that thwarts me.

Just leave me alone, world,
just leave me alone.

I am full of manmade things.
It wasn't always so.

Just leave me alone, world,
just leave me alone.

I am startled again
by the illusion of a shadow.

Just leave me alone, world,
just leave me alone.

What yearns is precious.
All we have is what is gone.
