Vital connection to the mainline
life force flows through me
best when free and unfettered
yet rust, mineral deposits and gunk build up
slow the flow, spring a leak
decrease my capacity
to deliver to others
what i am struggling to receive
if I dry up
we will all thirst
what are pipes for?
it is not me that you need
but that which flows through me
sometimes we all need
drano for the soul.

It is not me you need but what flows through me...Wow - that is lovely and inviting.

I am here. It's not me you need. Use my words in some measure.

I think you definitely win the lottery with "Drano for the soul" - great line.

At 65, I've done it! My poetry book - Life's Journey by Carmen Henesy - is out on Amazon!
