Yeah, it’s probably for the best
that I don’t see you for a while.
Too much sediment
in my sentiment
if that makes any sense
– and it probably doesn’t.
I’m not making much sense these days.

My senses have been working overtime
counting away from ecstasy
step by step
as if in a duel
walking away from what threatens to slay.

I am endangered by thoughts
and emotions engendered
by attendance in your presence
which is why I think the best choice
is Option E:
None of The Above
in which I keep my distance
and my counsel
and wish you well
and maybe you wonder
just a little
where I am
and how I fare
but probably not
because after all
that would have been too much to hope for.

I used to write quite a bit more.
