As I find you again, eating darkness by the phone, again.
You give off almost a sigh, of disbelief, of discontent, of chagrin.
You see a dead relative, a newborn stranger, both profound; Oblivious ranger.
You feed something dead, all you see is red, heed the wise words said.
As I find you again, biding time by the lake, again.
You take away almost a smile, of hope, of forgiveness, of acceptance.
You overlook a hapless dog, a revered cow, both abused; Indifferent ranger.
You starve something alive, all you see is black, search for the soul you lack.
As I find you again, scribbling in coffee shops, again.
You give in to the temptress, of delusion, of arrogance, of resentment.
You see a naïve romantic, a trustful cynic, both myopic; Bugbeared ranger.
You feed something dead, all you see is blue, why’d you ignore the clue?
