Unsticky Bonds

Introverts are often said
to 'have difficulty' when meeting people,
but that is far from the case.

Many extroverts are quite good at meeting people once.
The difficulty comes in maintaining continuity.

Introverts rely on others
to keep in touch with them
much more than they ever try
keep up with others, or be popular.

Forming firm and durable bonds
will never be their major priority.

The Drugs Test

The attraction of drugs
is that they connect people
with their fantasies,
whether they be of Heaven
or the riches of the life of the flesh.

Mostly when I took drugs
cannabis, mushrooms,
the occasional acid trip,
wherever they took me
I rarely connected
though I enjoyed the ride.

My flights from reality to fantasy
were to be achieved by other means.

Free Will?

Say 'No' to life,
and expressions you dislike,
all you want. Feel free
to express your dislikes openly.

The real crunch comes
when life says 'No' to you
and leaves you no negotiating space,
and denies even qualified affirmation.

Lonely Men

air their opinions quite often
and to whoever they are with
who might just be listening.

But they are rarely listened to
as attentively as they would like,
or imagine that they actually are.

Their loneliness reduces
how they hear all speech,
particularly their own.

So they never hear themselves
as others hear them, and never wish
for brighter conversations.

Saying 'No' To The Future

I was flattered when a friend offered
to optimize me after the word appeared
on my computer screen and dare not click on it
-for not knowing what would happen.

I thanked my friend but told him
'No, I have a fear of optimism'.

A Life

that has style
is less a lifestyle
and much more
a series of choices.
