Mute Man

January 20, 2018
What ignorant facets of you that remain ignored.

For what constrains the divergence in your headlights?
I forgo the road in spite of my absent horns,
Halt when reunited with flickering demons
Intellect not diffidence.
Because I nod and shuffle in the kitchen,
Bring empty sheets while I'm at your beck and call?

I bellow within the bounds of my person,
Crouched beside the clear frontier,
As I amplify my lacerations,
Watching the household duo,
Do I cross your habitual daydream?
Or do I prevail,
A uniform figurine?

And still I feel immense self reproach,
My envy manifesting within itself until,
So soon I realize I'm wrong too,
Giving into your overt foolishness,
I've offended my faithful desires.
Because I've become fixated,
When you endow your love,
Yet the experience remains unknown.

When you say no,
Just know I'll be home before dawn.
Your retribution won't last too long,
Real altruistic act of guidances will catch,
Me for a loop.
I know it's not your concern
But just this once please betray our silent trust.
