Two Way Radio
Like kids with two cups and a string.
We play at this life, guessing instead of knowing.
Speaking in riddles as we dance in circles.
Avoiding facts dodging truths
That are clear to everyone, as to ourselves if only we just cut the shit and face the facts.
Games played, lies embraced, as somewhere in between we exist unfazed as fully developed
I choose to cut the connection instead of maintaining a facade.
It’s never easy to be honest, but in being so.
It is most certainly easier being alone by default.
