The Attic Ash

she picks up on the non-subtleties that I completely overlook
I chase the brightest light
when I think I know what I think I know I am more than likely missing a majority of the story

that really doesn’t make me feel any better

ben once told me that a couple fills in each other’s gaps
I worry my strengths get stronger and my weaknesses consume any chance of me being a balanced individual

regardless, I was never a balanced individual

toro walked out of the attic covered in ash
there had been a fire there in the fifties
I have absolutely no reason to believe anything else.
