in the fog formed a girl
of lucid energy
whose spirit was without the need
for solidity

and she whispered secrets
that untangled pieces
of prose lost in my mind
me i was speechless
from a feeling that breeches
the barriers of time

but she grew bored and turned into a swarm
that appeared annoyed
and as quickly as she came
she evaporated into the void

why did she leave me here
what had driven her away?
was it selfish and greedy of me
to have needed her to stay

and floating through space
i remembered the pace
i had moved toward her waves
and it's in natures course
that the harder you force it
the harder it evades

but her veils had reveiled
my intent was conceiled
like the program of a droid
i had tried to use her warmth
to fill the expanding depths
of the void

she tried to punish me
for my ignorance of patriarchy


she showed me salvation is in a sense
to be conscious of your own incompetence
not to consume others at their expense
each selfless act makes a difference

and if i can be comfortable on my own
i might realize that this void
inside me
is not empty

you can't fill yourself with someone else
there's no room left inside your cells
