adventures in dysthymia

Wednesday, March 09, 2005


The jilted lover,
the defeated politician –
they know what it means
to lose all that matters.

To be needed,
that’s what counts;
To fill the holes
in another’s life

with all you are.
That’s what makes
it worth the effort.
That’s what makes life.
