change or how to stay the same
05.15.08 / 7:30 pm

i miss a step
and remember that it could be just like the last time,
though i believe that i've changed and am stronger,
my wariness founded in the experience.

and here i promised
to make no more mistakes, to walk away
if the pattern began to repeat,
the same second of the same song.

i find that maybe i am simply incorrigible,
a weathered column still standing,
antiquated yet indestructible,
somehow damned to stay the same.

my blood in the architecture, bred and polished,
almost like a living being.
