why am i not you
chloee

I see tetrahedrons effectively drawn
 1
in space with beams of light
 2
detailing silently sacred geometries of life
 3
when quietly a ghost sneaks up behind me and recites
 4
a new theory for science to violently rewrite
 5
and mask the truths with sugar coated candy
 6
not unlike the priests
 7
who buried all the truths under the wooden cross and parted sea
 8
and i tell the ghost that i believe hes right
 9
hes sucked by vacuum to the sky and i go back to studying the light
 10
 
 
i see the blades of grass dance
 11
and i know not of the wind
 12
so in my mind they dance for me
 13
and i begin to dance for them
 14
i see the water in the ocean reaching out for me
 15
knowing not of logic i can clearly hear it
 16
sing in breeze
 17
and i understand the language used
 18
and means for which it speaks
 19
 
 
i sing back to it
 20
in a higher pitch
 21
and a rhythmic rhyme
 22
and then i take off all my clothes
 23
and give them to the tide
 24
 
 
i see my naked body glowing white
 25
under the moon
 26
and i know not of the ego
 27
but i smile like i do
 28
if you can see me now, what would you think?
 29
why am i nude?
 30
why am i dancing?
 31
singing?
 32
why am i not
 33
you?
