come pair

by: Shelbi henny

tenacity that singles the confirmation 
we no longer accept 
spacing that solution
equipped to announce the year
I was scolded into resignations
that housed my regret
and taking me into places
that bear no ending
to simple beginnings 
and torture me into skipping 
parts that connect me 
to heartache
that space me out in deep waters
constant to initiate
the busy signals
when calling collect
hitting my voicemail 
to pretending that cool
start a process 
being new
devouring translucent avatars
continuing that lonely mark
crowded with strangers that look familiar
repeating the same demeanor
comparing relatable features
this is describing comparison
