Melt In It

Written by Jacob Ibrag

They’ll smile and separate spaces

to keep distance from all the mess you’ve

 manifested. No one understands any of it except

 the characters in the books that stare at your moving

lips. Idea’s flowing from page to page until the end nears

and it’s all history. What’s been shed between these lines

still very much alive inside your mind. The outsiders can’t

 comprehend until they flip the pages and awe in it. It’s

not something you listen to, you just have to melt

in it. Till then you’re the crazy one smiling

while they waste away married to their

mind numbing programming.

    “characters in the books that stare at your moving lips” a wonderful perspective in this phrase!

  7. Sometimes, it’s just, very difficult, to keep that focus you need, to read something, and you still force yourself to keep focus (as much as you can!), because you need to…
