Pass by the ongoing light of movement and sounds

 

 

A splash of clear liquid hits the clean surface

 

 

Shrugging commands that are meant to be followed

 

 

He yells

 

 

Hiding in my refuge of a room to avoid those strangers

 

 

He calls

 

 

Serving as a slave to the almighty of our days

 

 

Cleaning when seeing such a miniscule fragment hit the shrine

 

 

He nods

 

 

Missing a spot

 

 

He yells

 

 

Running

 

 

He yells

 

 

Falling

 

 

He yells

 

 

Everything I do wrong

 

 

He yells

 

 

Everything I do right

 

 

He ignores

 

 

Everything I am

 

 

He is not

 

 

Everything I want

 

 

He cannot provide

 

 

Everything

 

 

Is not his house in his eyes.
