Too Familiar


Kimberly Hunt

Gloriously happy people
are all around me
these days.
Though it pains me to admit,
each day I am filled
with a growing envy.
I have always longed to be
as fortunate as they.
I have yearned for
loving acceptance and
a life long companion.
I have found him.
Over and over again,
to my dismay.
I am so numb to the pain
of heart ache,
that my body now
somehow craves it.
I'm so exhausted from
my search that I
now live for the
day that the pain
sets in...
and sends me back
to my familiarity.
And finally,
once again...
here I am.
