The NEED
is doubted and scorned by
the EGO
which is stomped upon by
the PAIN
which is funneled through
the FORM
which can only
ATTEMPT,
FEEBLY
to approximate something like
the TRUTH
which is only valuable when
GROTESQUE
&
LEPROUS
&
DESPERATE
&
DRUNK, belligerent even.
But to say things out loud
HOWEVER TEMPTING
is is is is is is is is is is is
STUPID
AND
SELFISH
and invites
PUNISHMENT
albeit mostly self-inflicted).
PUNISHMENT
for thinking you want
SOMETHING
but then being not sure;
PUNISHMENT for later,
more wavering then
WANTING to
GO BACK or at least
RETHINK!
Then the big questions become:
WHO TO FIGHT?
&
WHO TO LOVE?
&,
most importantly,
WHEN TO LEAVE?
Oh brother when to leave?"
