i hear you but…

those things
that
preoccupy
your
day
i
have
lost
interest in
perhaps
it’s
the warm breath
of
death
on
my neck
that
distracts me
from
the importance
of
your
daily tragedies
not
to be
confused
with
some callous
nonconcern
for
you
but
rather
an awareness
of
the brevity
of
life
how
each breath
draws out
some portion
of
my existence
until
i’m
empty

  1. I am finding that I don’t have the energy or interest in other’s drama. It takes all my energy to care about the real issues in the lives of those around me and those who are suffering from real injustices.
