Cool On Fire

Posted: July 5, 2017 in Uncategorized

You can’t retreat behind hurt feelings
trampling on everyone else’s.

His heightened awareness of other people’s faults
an exquisitely crafted loneliness.

Hypervigilance byproduct: I’ll find your faults
before you can lament your failure to understand yourself.

I can’t take on another charity case
the whole world is needy.

I’m just one man isolated behind walls of stone
keeps the heart cool even when you’re on fire.

I’m used to the chill
I burn memories to keep warm.
