I'm Not Like You -- #POETVERITAS



 



I'M NOT LIKE YOU


I go home at night to a place like no place you've ever lived

everything in its proper position, perfect, all angles squared

cold, clean, sharp edges - no curves or softness

only razor precision.

Mirrors and glass and polished stone.

No sound gets in or escapes.

I am sealed in tight for the night.

Thermostat at exactly fifty five degrees.

And when at last I pick up my book to read,

I pay no attention to the written lines...

Just to the secret meanings of greater thoughts and grander feelings unwritten between them.

And I am not like you, nor am I like any other,

And the voices racing through my mind are telling me things

That you could not bear to hear.
