this is not about me

When it's rough, things come out....raw.


when everything's made
to be broken

i just want you to know
who i am

- "iris," the googoo dolls

How do you build
a strong wall
that does not crumble
as of a fort
shielded from elements
that corrode?

You can't.

How do you live
in a deserted island
uncharted by friendships
unmapped by experience

whether intended or not?

You can't. You just can't.

So now,

how do you fortify


from the longing

and the absence?
How do you fortify

from the tangible distance
and the mental presence?

You d
on't. You just don't.

In the end,
the end of it all,
perhaps you're just
that comet
that never came
to pass.
