movements

#1

it should not cause surprise
that there are terrors
in the pre-dawn morning
at the coldest of hours
before darkness edges into light

#2

the answer to your question
lies in the paradox
of a driving need
for distance and separation
operating in tandem
with the fear of dying alone

#3

sometimes it seems
that there is a very fine line to walk
between mutual pleasures
and subtle exploitation

#4

there is no real basis
for believing that
the co-location
of a toothbrush in the rack
holds significance beyond
courtesy and convenience

#5

many things are done
in the name of love
these are however largely false
it is probably the case that
more importance should attach
to those acts which suggest endurance

#6

it may not take long
on occasion merely a day or two
other times perhaps weeks
but do not doubt
that it will come
and negotiation will not
be of great assistance

#7

it is useful on occasion
to consider implications
and their consequences
before rushing to assume
a vulnerable position

#8

you may wish to reconsider
based on your own assessment
of the capacity you hold
to cope with misadventure

#9

with the passing of time
there sometimes emerges
a level of equilibrium
from within which it is possible
to see things clearly
and with an acceptable sense
of perspective
