    Isolating the Variable

    Isolating the variable

    What is this division among us?
    It couldn’t possibly be love creating this separation
    I step out of myself to look at this disaster
    how comfortable have we become to accept this illusion?
    Convincing ourselves that somewhere in the midst of this tragedy is happiness.
    Out of this bondage only leaves room for desertion
    Can’t even contemplate leaving, my feet don’t even know the direction to walk away
    Disembodied comfort is the pleasurable pain that allows one to stay
    Does he even find contentment in the measure that is me anymore, or is he just happy that
    someone loves him at all?
    Does he really want to leave, but holding on for fear that life will offer nothing else?
    Sometimes I feel like my delivery came with too many accessories
    we don’t even speak
    And how can we?
    We have run out of anything new to say.
    Somewhere we lost it…
    I don’t even feel it when he touches me
    And the monotony that is making love, won’t allow either of us to let go
    To take us to the one realm where only our love and God can exist
    I used to be an aphrodisiac
    Potent, and addictive
    I have probably long lost my savor
    Now what will we do when sin presents itself as flesh, tempting us to yield?
    If there is nothing left here, what morale will hold us back from running this well completely dry?
    I am cold now
    Frozen and old now
    Alienated and burned from love now
    I don’t even think I care to return
    I wouldn’t be going home even if I did
    My bags have been packed because my welcome has been outlived
    It’s time to retire this façade
    I’m down….

    This is phenomenol! I can't even tell you how amazing this is. I want to read all of your poems, damn you. Wow...just wow. This is so deep and raw.



    wow I do not ever think that I have heard someone respond to my work that way, when I write I just want to relieve my soul, but words like yours make it all worth it, thank you so much, I really appreciate that going to check out your work and send a friend add if that is ok

    In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

    Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
