I look left,
What’s pristine, is as such.
I look right,
What’s not, still isn’t much.

I open my mouth,
My lips purse, curse, but stay silent.
I close my eyes,
But I can’t tell if they’re compliant.

I step forward,
I get bigger but see less.
I step backward,
I see more but get depressed.

I reach out my hand,
My warm fingers aren’t greeted back.
I drop the act,
And only return once I’m back.
