you are my artform.


there are days when my stomach is not tucked in
and these attempts at spanish translation are too feeble
to dredge up verb conjugations
and i am just a fool.

i tried walking off this stupor
but it was like skipping off a cliff
(too easy, and anyway the philosophers
in my mindtunnels were too fat
too heavy to make action practical)

it's a sluggish sort of progress,
this growth into an orange-maned
dreamer
and daily i stoop to rebuild the walls of my illusions.

(because i want to keep this sunrise radiating
from my smile
and i want to stay happy.)


i try hard not to be a realist.
always.

it broke me to write that line
because it was the summary of all my mental struggles
all my doubts and strivings (fears)

but i treasure it now
truth is worth it
and i'm glad you see that.

it broke me to read it.
my whole life has basically been a back-and-forth struggle between idealism and realism. i desperately try to be an idealist (because it makes me happier), but i'm a born pessimist and that automatically shifts me towards realism.

i treasure it as well.
indeed, the truth is always worth being treasured. even if it hurts.
