Michaele

I see the same traits I hate
Manifesting in myself
I compartmentalize them,
And hide them on the shelves.

The mind forms defense against
Prospective thoughts of danger
Overwhelmed by the force of them
To occupy its chambers..

I’ve never been pragmatic,
I romanticized my problems,
Embellishing the issues
When I thought I couldn’t solve them.

It’s the only consolation,
Enveloped by delusions
Praying praying praying
That nobody else intrudes in.

They cannot scare me with their empty spaces
Between stars - on stars where no human race is.
I have it in me so much nearer home
To scare myself with my own desert places.

Robert Frost, Desert Places

He became lost in misty byways, in times reserved for oblivion, in labyrinths of disappointment. He crossed a yellow plain where the echo repeated one’s thoughts and where anxiety brought on premonitory mirages.
