Prescience of dawn: a sunny place for shady people. Long shadows on the lawn of a thin pixelated crowd, in parade of blood red sorrows. But your curtains are always drawn. You hide behind smooth and sterile surfaces. Finish your collapse and stay for breakfast. Buildings aren't haunted, people are. ~
Called back after years away
a voyage once more to the fray to live amongst forgotten days to few and far between. To anxious, nervous, brave that door re-enter worlds ‘akin’ to yours to take the plunge to reach the side of friends you left behind. To be greeted there by sleeping eyes and busy hands and nothing “hi”s but for the girlfriend of a friend and a kid you never knew. Bereft of meaning, course, or rhythm floating lost in my little corner struck by how great the divide has grown through intervening years
picking up the pieces
I never knew I had my walls down until you made me put it back up again
Some people listen to hear,
and some listen to respond. Some people talk to be heard, and some talk because they can’t stand the silence.
Meaningless meaningful conversations
Shadows rise to confront the sun,
stationary swirls continue to twirl. The grey of which is hardly seen, within those fragments of duality. Pearls found from darker nights, gleam direct in this moonlight. Black and white are convexed, whilst time itself is condensed. Golden opportunities appease those who can view with clarity. So step aside and think freely, to see the repeated disconnect.

At this precipitous gap
my palms, sweat-slick, ***** through anxious misunderstanding to catch your cool insecurities; but ever empty will they fall, ever short of connection, severed at the dire edge of empathy.
It’s the worst at night
Alone With ink-lit quietude as company I feel the disconnect And miss you When I’m with others With guards of delusion The illusion schemes And I only need myself Or whatever phantasm I can attach to
Connecting with people is easy
- You just get to know them Disconnecting with people is hard - You don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings but the person is not good in your current life situation Change is not bad - It just makes everything different How do you tell a friend you need distance? Nobody knows Nobody wants to hurt feelings But also nobody knows how they would go on with their life when people you want to have a break with can’t leave Nobody wants to be rude But change isn’t always bad Goodbyes are a part of life Leaving is a part of life Let people change You might disconnect but never with the most important people of your life You can fight for everything you want to achieve Life is complicated Don’t get distracted by the wrong people Disconnection is just a goodbye
learning to be a divided submersible once so perimetric on the fringe of all that grows within we thus fall and settle much like Sarajevo Roses colorfully resting in the lasting drawn out places we made perish now here am I into you the ****** connective entirely dependent upon the quotient of two integers the way we love is a method of mixed results
