I have lost any desire to peer over;
Compassion, a desire to understand;
Not when insanity makes dialogue between us impossible.
I no longer have the heart,
To continue using the shorthand labels,
The very existence
Of your views,
Of your beliefs
Convince me that the poison has spread too far.
I can’t defend my lack of love,
Not when I believe in He who is love
But I’ve convinced myself
That opposing what you stand for
Love in action;
I know that can’t be true;
But I’m helpless in the face of such truth denial.
Facts are now countered by emotional certainties,
And that makes it even more dangerous,
