The Invisible Beside

He never
starts with “How are you?”
even though
it’s the right thing to ask
But if things are not going to last

Why bother?

She never
thinks that she will lose
in this matrix race
awfully filled with traps
But if it’s not about who’s slow who’s fast

Why suffer
to win?

They never
know what all of these could mean
When it comes to pave a joint path
because it’s not just the matter between future and past
It is also the presence

But they’re afraid it could spoil the fun
No one dares to look into their hearts
instead put aside that part
and accept

The uncomfortable convenient invisible beside..
