how far can you go
hanging on by a thread
pretending to be attached
until you fall–
in a tunnel
that doesn’t seem to end. ?
how much can you drink
without being full
and being killed by fatal anesthesia
and blaming it on apathy–
in a life
that you wish would end. ?
what if nothing turns out like you’d hoped.
what if sleep steals dreams and light draws tears
and there’s not even security in emptiness. ?
new eyes, new heart, new mind…
are just too much to ask for.
silence and screaming are equally as violent.
so you run away and feign ignorance.


One thought on “Detachment

    oh, what a familiar place! i’ve learned, though… walks through deserts make finding an oasis ever so refreshing.
