Friday afternoon poetry

An itch you can't scratchA scratch you can't reach A stretch you can't stretch Expansion is constant and always retreating Always is a dirty word and should never be used Should, always, never Forever is typically hopeful, but I won't say always Never is usually throwing in the towel

My point of view is skewed and others look in with judgement, more experience, better approaches I can see you, too, you know It bothers me sometimes that there are parts of my body I'll never be able to see without a mirror

Maintain, I have to at least maintain But if I'm only treading water, I'll eventually drown where I paddle My dreams haunt me with reality

Reality is invading my reality
