Tresses of hair, lazy strands, floating.  
   An empty cavern in your chest. 

It’s the opposite of emoting. 
   Loneliness is just nothingness. 

Cutting the cords, you float away, right? 
   No, you spin head first, a downfall. 


The author's comments:

This is written in a Korean poetic form called sijo. It lillustrates how people think that distancing yourself from others will help you "float", but it really will just make you fall.
