Cognitive Dissonance

My space heater rumbles
Like a part is loose
Everything inside me
Stumbles

In the first place
Every place is hollow
I promised not to say broken
So my fingers hover
Over keys and my heart argues
With my mind

I can’t write
I can’t love
I am nothing
I am everything and everyone
I can do it
All

And every choice screams in the echoes of our hearts
We betray
We honor
We help
We harm
How many of our foolish steps are
Steps we took to save something
That ended up
A pirouette
Into a place where our deepest insecurities
Slide and melt us
Deeper
Into
An illicit

One.
