metamorphosis

shriveled, warm, crisp, dry
endless continuations of
endless expanses of
endless endless endless

words don't feel like words any more
repetition, redundancy,
unreal.

fading, already faded
nearly almost faded away

nothing's the same as how it
used to be.
even those fade.

everything's the same now.
dialogue, internal / external
the voices, even they all think the same
now

deterioration. half-hearted resistance
refuses to raise its eyes

redundancy.
re
re
re.

stare into my eyes, tell me what you see.
i've been blinded; colours of flamboyant life
faded, dissipated
but still, i can see that you are
fortunate enough

look at me.

disconnected, stagnant.
lifeless?

no such mercy.

stare. i can see you fade away.
