The Other Side

What’s behind
preferring longing
picking unavailable
Is the state of crushing
too good
to let go
Letting go is falling
maybe failing
Falling up
never happens
The cats and I are
at the window looking out
wanting out
but it’s raining
It seems that something better’s
on the other side
better than in here
We’re never happy
Once commitment’s made
the mystery fades
magic goes the way
of dancing on the moon
not as likely
as just staring at it
The outside cat
likes anything he’s given
Does freedom
makes everything
taste good.
