The Denouement

Posted: December 13, 2017 in Uncategorized

I used to reassure myself directly in relation
to the number of friends I believed I had.

I thought of them as wealth
a hedge against loneliness security from solitude.

I counted my relationships as accomplishments
rewards earned for good effort put forth.

By my deeds of friendship shall they know me
such careful constructs cannot endure.

There are no control mechanisms
I wrote a script they improvised.

A wise director knows when to cede control
the play unfolds with or without him.

The epic I envisioned ends with too few characters on stage
I applaud myself for realizing the denouement before the curtain falls.
