Time is relative
Dialation of moments
The differences between two perspectives
Velocity and speed and…
It’s just different

Heat is relative
The rise and fall of it
The way it makes us feel
You know, it’s the humidity that makes it feel hot?
Shivering and sweating
It’s just different

Flavour is relative
A flavour in my mouth
Is not the same in yours
Tastebuds and brains and experience and craving
It’s just different

Happiness is relative
Definitions between them and us
As varying as shades of blue
Azure and cerulean
Indigo and bice
It’s just different

I am relative
Thoughts in my mind
Don’t translate well into voice and words
Actions speak louder?
My actions are fumbling pain clumsy
Me by any other name will be exactly the same
I am … just different

You say I am not as I see myself
The differences between two perspectives
Indigo and bice
The way it makes us feel
Experience and craving

Definitions are relative
not smooth or graceful; ungainly; uncomfortable; backwards; perverse

Smooth like the words that flow from my fingertips, written for you.

Graceful like falling
Swinging to and fro
Swing like tyre
Ropes and tree
Air rushing
A breeze only my skin feels

Ungainly like elegant.
Me in binary
01001101 01100001 01101101 01100001 00100000 01100010 01100101 01100001 01110010

Comfortable like with each other
Like with no other
Like us

Backwards and perverse
I’ll leave that interpretation up to the reader

The relativity of ourselves
Up for interpretation


Time cannot see itself

Flavour doesn’t know how it dances on tongues

You say I am not as I see myself
I guess you must be right
But that means that so am I
When I say the same for you

    1. I’m glad you liked it!

      It was actually brewing for as long as it took me to write. My love insisted I get some writing done because I hadn’t written for a couple of days… then this poured out.

      I know right! I didn’t know about it either until someone pointed me towards it.

      Pills? Which pills? Vitamin C? Lacteeze?
