Well of sadness

Well of sadness

There is a well of sadness in me

that is slowly emptying, emptying

and when the sadness gets out it invades me

paralyzing my mind and my heart

I often forget what sadness is, forget that I am sad even

so thick is the mist that comes out from the well

and yet that is the way to healing

recognizing sadness and understanding from which gap in love

from which doubt, it stems
