You saw me, I didn’t see you
You spoke, I didn’t hear you
You probed, I didn’t feel you
Senses derailed
Completely detached
No desire to be exposed again
This world is too evil
These people are too wicked
Damaged beings
Using one another for quick fixes
I do not trust them
I do not trust…you
You stood still until I saw you
You kept speaking until I heard you
You kept probing until I felt you
You said it’ll be okay
Just flow
Senses awakened
Slowly intoxicated by your sweet nothings
It’s nothing
I think I can trust you
I let go
Then you let up
Swimming in a pool of doubt
Silence filled with wonder and guilt
This isn’t the foundation on which anything should be built
You’re still dancing with the past
Intrigued by the future
I said it’ll be okay
You should let go
There’s better in store
You chose to go backwards for more
It’s only right that I close this door
Detach and retreat
No…don’t bother to speak.
I accept your gift
I enjoyed the ride
But it’s clear,
You were never truly ready for what’s on this side.
