I watched my world unravel tonight,
I believe in love,
I understand pain and indifference,
though cannot recognize ignorance.
This night I listened to voices
familiar and strong
speak with certain agonizing
reactions to simple insecurities.
How soon do we lose ourselves,
when hiding inside a square box
incapable of having corners,
unaware of angles of reason.
When one person believes in rage,
the others follow suit,
When once a person tears,
the others make choices
We wonder sometimes,
if the tables were turned,
were they turned on me,
or did I make it all up.
I walked around,
looking for a variable,
searching for a purity of reason,
I couldn’t find an alternative.
Walking alone in confusion,
I’m supposed to laugh but I cannot,
I’m trying to hide but I cannot,
I listen, but not to hate justify a desire
I realized tonight,
its in my world,
everything we believe is not,
is actually real and certainly designed
for their own needs,
for the sake of no one else,
