Not Enough

Picture courtesy of

When too much is not enough
when not enough is too much
As distance separates us
as separation distances us

A life without is lonely and alone
a lonely and alone life is without
A home barren of love is
a love at home left barren

Darkness without light suffocates
darkness lit by brightness breathes
Days turn into weeks to empty months
days emptied into longevity turn dark

The teapot boiling into a tempest
the tempest melting the teapot
Chaos confined breeds creativity
chaos unconfined creates chaos

When is too much not enough
when is not enough too much –
