Gestures & Patterns

In shifting eyes, varied tones, and repeating sighs
We do our best to disguise
And convince ourselves that the weight of former offenses
Is meant to be held
And projected on to someone else with the preferences
That we already know
Though it seems by nature we agree still we swallow without
Saying what is on our minds
So we assign names to phrases that we recognize
As remainders of our past lives
That left the fear if we could ask why
And carried us over blurred lines by

Gestures and patterns taken out of context
