there lays the tragedy
of my overwhelming
melancholy            on the
floor, scratching at

real honesty, who am I
to love nothing more
than the ghosts of people
who have died and I have

never met. not once, there
they were in existence, there
I am, too. hunched over a
simple title for simple truths

that I can’t comprehend. Sorrow
of the earth and in this
moment               Hans Zimmer
knows my heart without ever
meeting me

perhaps, I am presuming things
perhaps, I am listening with my
soul
perhaps, none of this is a

tragedy, but a triumph
