A Phrenic Quake


You are not the same you were before
You move away from who you are now
When will you be yourself my dear friend?
I try to speak to you in vain
You have more than one presence in you
You never make out the words I utter
The listener is absent when people overlap
It's the same when you pretend to exist
What shall I do when you resist to reveal
Yourself to me a lie in hiding?
I reproach you with incoherant thoughts
To be dispelled in the unknown
I know you do not fear the abstract
For you are in love with the lost
But I try too hard in vain
You smile but only for a while
I quake in a manner loose
Leaving a crack in the essence of my being
For I tried too hard in pain
To float into your split space
Becoming you in every essence
And an excuse for your existence.
