Lost Displays

Freedom from forgiveness
Freer yet from selfishness
Anger hatred fighting rising
Always mindful of a kindness
Truly wise never disguising
A hurricane flung free from blame
This is why we are amazing
This is why we are terrified
Impressed with imminent disbelief
Better to do than to have not done
So many sides to each of us
You see the things that even I
Refuse to show
Refuse to know
Refuse to
Question anymore
Truly wiser than before
Truly better than the absence
Of an old abandoned shore
Dried up is what once was
Crammed with tantalized
Beach goers
And flocks of seaside birds
Forget these words
Forget me not
I will forget thee ever caught
In nets for fish
Or butterflies
Far away from what
We thought
No salty rock
Can hold the strongest
Wave when sun can soon
Evaporate the water
Like the truth
Much like our youth
Much like the hillside sifting
Down down down
In disrepute
The end is quickly swept away
In careless
Public space displays
Of lost affection
