The Thing


the thing
why always so many feelings of the thing
the anger at the thing
the longing for the thing
the grasping of the thing

why are the thoughts
so about the thing
while the feelings within
remain where is the pain we struggle with

take away the thing
and the feelings remain
be it of a different thing
and these feelings soon return

these things
indeed they surely are
and this pain
is indeed so very real

but where is it
that all this is felt
where is it
and who remains

could that I better learn
of all that occurring in me
could that I learn
a more able me
