Parting Ways

I met my
                         soul in dark
        chasms of
               unendurable
 
voids, clutching
                         my heart in
        my hands,
               safe havens
 
wither in
                         visions of
        derelict
               buildings or
 
the erosion
                         of presumed
        alliances,
               just as trivial
 
as dandelion
                         seeds dispersing
        in gentle
               winds—I’m soon      
 
parting ways, 
                         seven hurricanes
        will cleanse
               my energies

“As each moment progresses, the human being must answer the two quintessential questions: Which forms of influence will dominate me? To which forms of influence will I contribute?”
