Wallowing choking swallowing: deviations from the hoped for goal. Based on baseless associations and wide-eyed make-believe. Try holding on: remain unfeeling. Lies unraveled: truth revealing. Throw out the bath tub with the bath water: corrosive acid’s forced resignation. There’s no patch big enough to make this whole.
Untruths untold: we’re back to where we started. Two freshmen taking chemistry in a class of just 300. Symbolic stories, fated futures: I’d have told it to our children. I would have, ignorance obscuring what clearly wasn’t bliss. I learned from you but hoped for more, I realize time rewinding. Grains of wood like fingerprints: aging wisdom, self-defining.
