Off line

My connection is down

No signal to outside world

Lost in confusion for a way

Restoring to local contact

Awkward conversations grow

Strangers left together for years

I’m well aware of your issues

But never seen your personality

I find you less annoying somehow

The distance of a barbed wire fence

The closeness we always shared

It seems we may not be as different

A blackout was needed to see you

I should apologize for not noticing

The person that you have always been

We share an impersonal nature

We choose the easiness of isolation

Maybe the world isn’t cold, just lazy

In mist of internet darkness, I grow

Wait, the networks back got to go

The Edge, my old friend

I step from the edge

Maybe it left me behind

Impulses were heartbeats

Chances flapped like wings

Ashes of Icarus, my memories

Bruises, postcards from edge

Fathers chargin, wore as crown

Now the soul tires at the view

Thoughts make fences before me

Fear, my perfect stranger sits beside

His sister worry reaches for me

Her warm hug masks cold touch

My younger shadow warns me

My hearing has diminished somehow

Maybe I never had it at all

My eyes still long for a view

My heart wishes for random beat

The edge still calls out to me

It takes even longer to go back

The flights of fancy just mental

Deep inside, my old friend knows

We are not what we used to be

To each other, at least.

Maybe, maybe not

Maybe, maybe not

My thoughts squirm

Magic 8 ball like

Highly possible dances

Future unclear pirouettes

Driverless path lies ahead

Curves careen like sleds

Slippery slope races by

Every grip is a lie

Smiling sending control

The stop authors the story

I’ll cling to the same thought

Maybe, maybe not
