subtle, this quiet catlike entrance,
unexpectedly moving me to
run and throw open all the doors i've been
protecting for so long. i'm left
reeling, unsure of myself,
intently trying to understand the 'how' and 'why.'
surely there must be a reason
i can uncover with this diligent introspection.
nothing. just this intricate landscape of
glaring vulnerability from which i cannot hide.
