Unbroken (Day 299)


imagine
having a heart
that had never been
broken
or a spirit
that had known
only joy

the topography
of a life 
like that   
unmarred by yearning
unchanging   unearned
a bleak and  
featureless expanse
as far as the eye could see

like awakening
yawning and stretching  
into a nightmare
of eternal ennui
from a dream
rich with longing
and love
and loss
