Deep and Meaningful – Written January 2011 (Aged 35)

Deep and Meaningful

deep and meaningful
ill gotten thought
sexual tension –
found a number
and then a reason
retired to another season
swam a channel
i had hoped would be too deep
worry stormed my gated
and then occupied my sleep
hope came in –
half way through
it flung open the doors
and introduced its friend,
something new
came in, demanding recognition
i pulled up beside,
and asked for a definition
