How far I have fallen

so sick of this wonder and terror

and longing for my brothers’ skills

at feeling nothing at all.

Searching for an off switch

but the days of spiritual robotics are long gone.

we’re wading in a pool of human emotion.

Its wild and terrible,

and so very real,

and burns brighter than the stars.
