yourself that is NOT


freedom breathes
freedom like people
you move and move in it
at times i see
yourself that is not

affecting me
affecting much
my thoughts that
perished hell has
forsaken my head

pain is not desired
pain is never wished
in a wishing well
i feel at you
burning entirely me

the drama of us
only the two of us
i loathe at
yourself that is not
yourself that is not
