Elemental

you spin 
the elements of your life 
in a vacuum 

coiled 
like a snake 
in perpetual hibernation 

no light 
no truth 
no reason 

no soft air 
to touch you 

inside 

where living weeps 
to unwind itself 

to begin feeling 

something 
anything 

the one thing 
needed to unravel 
its lonely existence- 

a touch 
of selflessness 

how do you do it 
I wonder - 

survive 

not knowing 
how to give 

or receive 

the easiest moments 
of every day
