When I walked into the room

I knew this place was not for me.

Too many hands reaching out

For things I would never give.

None of them wanted the prized possession;

Just a temporary release

A moment of time to ease their mind

So they could move on

To the next one.


As I began my hasty retreat

I saw him;

Heard him rather.

The one clear voice

Above all others.

The one moment of sanity

In an otherwise insane situation.


He breathes love into a loveless world

Sensibility into instability

And finds love

In every moment

He can.


In a second of chaos

All I saw

Was him.
