Poles apart

As all the alcohol settles in
enter the pleasant feeling of a buzz
all the noise and chatter
engaging fun
Something weird ; like a beep in the ear:
Ignore it

You play a few games and it feels swell to be there
away from the pain and clamour
from what actually matters
Soak in the wetness of that world
as I learn to grow my roots in the dust
our worlds will forever be apart

Let those worlds be themselves
not intertwined
like the distance between the same poles of a magnet

do not change the truth
let it stay fierce
and afar
let the beauty of your world be itself
and let my darkness run free at night
there’s only the dawn and dusk for us
The rest is all poles apart.
