Wall

It’s so satisfying to hit the wall
As hard as you can
Feel the pain
Nothing to lose, nothing to gain

Mindtricks

Physical pain can usually be cured by a pill
psychological only by sheer will
Give it time

There is no quick fix
your mind is playing tricks
Acknowledge the situation

Know yourself and your mind
only then will you find
Peace

Midterm

Right now or forever
Makes no difference
Time is a variable
That’s undeniable

Everything can change
Anything can happen
Murphy’s law in full effect
Or is my reality defect

Long term

Small flaws
Incompatibilities
Make us give up
Make us flop

Living in a fish pond
A never ending search
With no desire to sacrifice
That one flaw nulls the entice

What’s the point
If there’s no possible future
Can it be imagined, nursed and created
And the relationship elevated

Author’s note:

‘Long term’ is a piece about relationships and considering whether your partners flaws are deal-breakers or if it’s something that you imagine that they are. Is there even such a thing as a deal-breaker and where is the line?

Signature White

Short term

I know you’re just a phase
No ‘rest of our lives’
A point in time
Our safe space thrives

We’re only in it with one leg
With no desire to sacrifice
For now
You will suffice

Author’s note:

‘Short term’ is about being in a relationship you cannot see a future in. Still you can acknowledge that it gives you value, so you stay in it.
