Diploma in Disentanglement

We have convinced ourselves to withhold love

That it is easier to pretend that our souls attach to nothing

Nothing at all

Not the boy, the girl, the dream

Stay away

Stay far away from anything that could be considered a real connection

I have my diploma in vacancy

I spent years learning how to detach

Years of being taught by those before me

Who also became masters of isolation

We are a community who prides itself on disentanglement

By refusing to live at all

It is better told hold back

Than to feel at all
