The distance you find yourself

From the source


at times

the perspective

that you

have on its touch of reality

and on yours

get close

really close and you can see

the true beauty

and sometimes feel

its bite

What I See

Do other people
See what I see
When they look at the world
The sky
A stone
The bathroom floor?
Why do I see
What I see?
Why do I
Like it makes me
Not quite real
I see the faces
In the floor tile
In the car bodies
In the house fronts
I pass by
I see the pain
In the invisible eyes
The hearts calling out
For tender care
Am i that strange
To see what I see
Are others
Just not aware
