Loose Threads

Oh captive, my captive

I’m trying to seem more authentic and less deceptive

You want me to be 100 percent more perceptive

and 50% less protective,

You want freedom and less connection

While we stare at each other from our respective planets,

like we are trying to telepathically feel each others presence

Like a mirror collecting its own pieces to display a severed reflection.
