in motion


i’ve been a good reflector

for so long

your goals

became mine

but now

i’m adrift

on a pointless sea

of hot air and promises

i blame myself

for maintaining proximity

long beyond

anything considered reasonable

but i suspect

you’ll never understand

the effect it’s had

upon my soul

the weeping rages

i find myself in

nor the nights i shake

in bed

unable to find rest.
