so many
feelings

so many
thoughts
attached
to those feelings

but
no words
sticking to any
of them

age

COVID

isolation

an election

unemployment

and purpose

where
has the
purpose
gone?

a lifetime
spent
trying to fit
into a society
that I inherently
distrust

all
that I see
are lies

and I
feel as if
I must lie
as well
in order
to belong

another hypocrite
within
the larger
hypocrisy

otherwise
I can simply
embrace
this solitary
version
of supposed
self-honesty

only able
to wonder
about the warmth
of your
touch
