Mind, Mother, Moon,

Why did you send me this?

I’ve been trying to connect with you,

Even when the door is closed and I’m speaking only to myself.

A relationship I don’t intend to lose but one that seems impractical to maintain.

I did what you asked and in the fashion you liked,

Only for you to add an extra step to shake me up.

Your gestures seem momentary and sporadic but I appreciate them no less.

I don’t understand what I am to do,

At this stalemate that keeps us from war.

The terrible and irreparable damage seems to keep us in limbo without love,

But driven by love no less.

So I ask again:

Why did you send me this?

Are you trying to shake the foundation which upholds me?

The same foundation that I have constructed solely.

I love you but I hate the things you do.
