because while some truths lend themselves to equations, others are best described in verse

second circle

gateway

someone once told me never
to turn my back on an ocean but
truth is the lies crashed
over my head before i
could suck in my breath;
now buffeted by deaf winds and
drowned in tumbled waves i
slide noose-like under
waters too heavy to hold me,
scrape shins and
veins against a
shore all too willing
to forget.

    Love this new one, sadly alone, but then what else would inspire such a great poem.
