[x]Paradigm Adrift.

(A tale of the Mirror and the Fool)

Cast aside, like the spare parts in other people's machinations

Unexpected and unsettling, she crashed into me with matching scars

Her beauty adrift, I found myself compelled to do anything to save her…

Even though this loop of mine doesn’t make much of a life preserver anymore


Now I’m trapped with this force of a wounded girl

who never lets me find her, even when she’s right here

and bound by validations and adoration -

we do nothing but trip over each other’s defense mechanisms


Even though we still want nothing more than to surrender to someone

As much as we’ve lost – we still refuse to yield to each other

And in the resulting volatility

We don’t know what to do with ourselves when we’re not on fire


While everything I feel is in binary, at least she’s still trying to burn –

Still, there are fleeting, intoxicated moments when we’re almost there…

When I have to stop that looking in her eyes, for fear of falling in…

The sheer vastness of our respective love


Even if I’m just going to end up a fool simply holding your reflection in a mirror

In some small pathetic way, you’ll still end up in my arms

And I’ll still wish that I was enough to hold you permanently

And I’d wish you’d realize that you are so enough


I know the stillness of being unrequited can drive us insane –

but I would give anything just to be able to move you

To get you unstuck from saying goodnight moon

And be there when you finally say good morning to the sun
