I am Whole

Fri, 03/11/2016 - 03:22 -- janelmi

Never houseless but always homeless,

Music managed to provide a sanctuary

Even if it is temporary.

Always hungry but full off of food for thought, music was always nourishing.

Cheeks sallow,

belly hollow,

not a dime to my name

Soul’s broken like cheap pottery

Music the adhesive keeps me together as my knees weaken,

I, no different from that beautiful bowl

Broken but golden.
