Dear One

I do not rest dear one
I steep stillness in noise dear one
I am running dear one
I dart like a doe with my fears dear one
There is an absence of day and night dear one
I am in a kind of everlasting jetlag dear one
The sky is less funny these days dear one
The shadows are swallowing me up dear one
Remorse is my excuse dear one
Excuse is my remorse dear one
I walk as a lion in my cage dear one
Here are the streets I know for years that
I haven’t seen before dear one
I live in the future dear one
I live in the past dear one
The present I get past quickly by hurrying away from
or towards something else dear one
I close my heart like a fist dear one
I do not close my eyes as a fish dear one
Do you hear me dear one
For the first time I am not pretending dear one
I am running dear one
I do not rest dear one
