Community Angst

Quiet please

Just don’t speak

I mean

Try to avoid listening

At this moment there is a pattern

To how we respond

How words spark

The imagination

How notions translate

What once might have been

genuine

Feelings of self worth

~

I told you everything

Shared difficult times

Trust

What did I miss?

That you need to continue

Manifesting your own

Sense of being

Personal identity

How might my reaction

Allow you that

False, self-serving inner

Peace.

~

Today won’t go away

We’ll see each other again

And shyness will feign ignorance

The hours will speed by

That is, drift by

Well, as long as there are no

Reminders

Those are the painful

Realities we like to avoid

That fantasy of visual

Sameness

That we cannot seek

We want to get along.

Not today

~

Sun rise

Sun set
