To you

If you remember…

By Kuro Seijaku Published about a year ago 1 min read

Penchant perhaps, personally perspective pervades.

Penchant perhaps, for some reason you stay.

Periphery playing tricks on me.

Ctrl you’re the alt to delete, but that would be variable, you see?

Unknown alone are we.

Alone unknown are we.

Under a cloudless sky I stare to see innocence die.

The cosmic bodies entranced in dance.

A war in space that at a glance, escapes the world I know.

What is it to be when it is so easy to be otherwise?

What does it mean to be alive knowing you could easily die?

What gives life meaning without the imminent threat of death?

I think that is where innocence died.

In space, so devoid, a vacuum to life.

Surrender to it’s grip and you’re gone before long.

How is this so?

Is our experience so minuscule that to leave our rock for too long spells doom?

What of our defiance?

ISS, satellites, telescopes, and rovers.

We’ve leapt into the unknown so many times now that it is commonplace.

Ancient societies surely think us mad or gods, penchant; perhaps both.

Thus what are we to dedicate our time to?

Penchant perhaps?

Is it love?

How are we to know these days if not to live within it?

You see, for it is the choice that makes it worth it.

The choice to be brave in the face of fear.

The choice of compassion when met with tears.

The choice to quell everything else we feel, to be one, love.

Penchant perhaps, particularly peculiar perilous properties people possess.

Were I to display the full depth of it so immediately would it be worth it?

If you’re not to see it all at once would you savor it’s splendor?

The apprehension of inhibition knows better.

Honey attracts bears, and bees.

Vinegar? Vinaigrette!

Nothing is truly so stark minus the absolute.

The only absolute truth is that people shall never agree.

Penchant perhaps.

It’s who we are.

Yet time with love may heal all scars.

Penchant perhaps, passion.
