The Deep End

Zooming
In and out
out of the picture
See
Emotions

You thought you were
alone
but there
behind your reflection
were three

you are looking
but you do not
sea
of faces
interlocking spaces

With them
you thought you
were unique
because of your beauty
you think the world would see

Just taste it,
like he did,
like she did,
like they did,
twist their heads and minds

like they all did
one day with your
stupid
reveries
and left you there alone

thinking your were sold
some special promise of
a kind of cold melting
affection

how could you
get so dazed in
the
sea of
spaces
standing between you and
him
her
they
all

do you the same
and leave you standing
on the brink
of your sanity

but they are all the same
you see
you could have avoided all this
calamity

by never opening
by never speaking
by never smiling
by never opening
the door
to your heart
in the first place

they leave
Last
you
cast
a
shadow
on your past
you cannot
capture
in the photo you see.

you were not unique
just too quick to speak
what was written in the
secret corners of your
heart

then those conversations turned into
daily speech
you let them see your vulnerability

they take it
they sip
all of its
energies
and leave you
fatigued

out in the deep end
when you were nothing
to them
