transparent lives

writing is expression of the self
an extension of the mouth
an act of communication
a complex weave of mental and emotional states compressed
into lines and shapes that are deeply imprinted into the very base of our psyches.
We express an unstated bond with our brethren that we will be giving
and they will be taking
as the words are gifts to everyone who sees them
but they are nothing.
They can have everything every word every nuance
and they have only that
the shared experience
not the writer
only the words and feelings
but nothing of the truth of what you are.
we dance and they see and think the dancer
but not the being dancing.
we are untouchable for what we are
not what we give.
Giving is everything
getting is difficult
to not hold
to not take and be taken.
we live transparent lives.
everything is known
only we don't know it.
there is no secret or silly thing unknown
how we move our hands or drink our wine or touch ourselves or sing badly
think dark thoughts or feel unbearable despair and madness
this life fulfilled
known noted and moved on.
but the being is untouched unchanged
wrappered in this frenetic living that is unwrapping
but never the present unknown awaiting inside
