How many times can you look at the same pictures.
The same words.
The same thoughts before they never change?
Obsession and Compulsion.
Drive and Impulse.
Oh the humanity.
What can you gain?
What will you gain?
Weighing the shoulds with the shouldn'ts.
Never to balance nor to compare.
The act of moving on is so impenetrable.
So unattainable.
Which leaves the facades to make it sustainable.
Building up and on and over and under.
Until it's all stripped away again.
And you are back on the ground.
Back to the zero.
Viewing exactly what you are hanging onto.
Without the why.
Without a way beyond.
Without the will to never Look Again.
