Equanimity

All of these

words are

blissful imaginings.

Fantasies

to keep you at bay.

Close your eyes

and listen,

and I will take you

far.

far away.

 

There is only room

for this one

ego,

here in this space,

here in my head.

Leave you

right where I found you,

sleeping soundly

in my bed.

 

Try as I might,

I can’t stave off

reality

for very long.

Soon as I come,

I’m finding

that I’m gone.

So far away,

that I’m miniscule

in your eyes.

Why can’t we ever

imagine ourselves

satisfied?
