The Division of Gravity


“I know what I’m fleeing from but not what i am in search of” Michel De Montaigne.

After awhile you learn the source of difference..
Between holding hand and chaining a soul..
And you learn love doesn’t mean leaning…
And company doesn’t mean security…
And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts..
And presents aren’t promises…
And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes open…
And you learn to build your own routes
Because tomorrow is groundless…
Too uncertain for plans…
And futures have a way of falling down..
in mid-flight.
After awhile you learn that..
Even sunshine burns if you go too much..
So you plant your garden
And decorate your own soul
Instead of waiting for someone
To bring you flowers…
And you learn that you really can injure…
And you are really strong…
And you really do have worth…
And you learn and learn..
With every goodbye you learn..
