Reinstalling my System (4)
Inspiration hits with a flash, stories written on the go. A rumble of laughter and the tale is heard only in echoes. The wind blows me in a new direction. Whom shall I visit next?
The progress bar moves slowly still
Do not unplug your unit,
I rub my temples wearily
I know I can't assume it
Will really work. I doubt the flaw
Was ever in the OS.
My heart has always burst with love
Though I was e'er the slowest
At finding anyone to love
Me back; my love was spurned
And so there was no conflict till
At last it was returned!
I thought my heart was satisfied,
Its constant yearnings over
The movies told of One True Love;
So I could ne'er discover
Another to reciprocate
Romantic love but them,
Nor would I truly love again
The flood was fin'lly stemmed.
So firmly was this mindset fixed
I failed to find it fake
For many years, despite the warnings
That my feelings spake.
I tried to muffle my heart's shouts,
Withdrew from every friend
I thought, to cut connections off
I'd make the clamor end,
And deadened all emotions. Even
Family love was muted,
While bonds to stalwart childhood dears
I grimly executed.
