    Life Questioning

    Did you ever lose a key?

    Put it in your pocket maybe?
    Maybe in your coat?

    Did you ever try to find it?

    With your fingers numb
    And shivering with cold?

    Did you ever tap, first gently,

    Then, increasingly with panic
    On the wall?

    Did you ever open up and find

    It's you-
    You're on the wrong side of the door.



    Running on empty...
    On empty, how long can you run?

    Without light...
    What happens when night finally comes?

    How long can you stave off
    The wolves as they bay
    At the hot scent of blood, and your tears?

    And what of Heart's treasures
    You've struggled to save,
    When you finally fall to your knees?
