accepting it all

Posted: February 1, 2015 in Uncategorized

recording the unnecessary

mainlining the depths

finding no wisdom

concluding nothing

          an internal dialog spoken in whispers I cannot hear


keeping secrets from myself

yearning for the truth

hiding from the truth

fearing the truth

confronting myself without conviction

          music played on instruments beyond my capacity


coming to conclusions

changing my mind

reformatting my solutions

intuiting the next course

showing off with shadows

          misdirection performed with precise purpose


grounded by fear

asking after the children

engaging in social intercourse

putting my best face forward

          masks worn even before the mirror


verbalizing complex issues

interpreting strange signs

altering my perceptions to accommodate puzzles

riddled with everything

feeling the undeniable truth


          all that there is is all there

    most appropriate… feeling the undeniable truth

    You are definitely not watching the super bowl. Sorry I can’t help myself
