the inevitable

love is a time piece
attached to suitcase full of dynamite
consciously dismantled
the definition of regretful dissection
sentimental mechanisms
symbiotic layers of components
leading to risk calculations
and adrenaline spikes
infinite possibilities
for potential tragedies
kept in perfect time;
a linear ultimatum counting down
the seconds to self preservation
of an already questionable sanity
we hold our breath and cut the wire
we tell ourselves is the most likely
to lead to the inevitable

"She would fill endless notebooks with stories about the characters in her life, their impressions, words, friends, lovers, inspirations, fantasies. She spent her days dreaming up worlds where they fit together in visions; the if only, the never again, the someday. Those who knew her best would describe her as a creature with a clear and sometimes painful sense of herself; furious with ideas and convictions, to a point that she frightened love away with discernment and a relentless strength of character."
