The line observed.
Its angles transparent,
Like the fanciful dream of a sliding geometry.
It's the hint of curve that plagues me
of a slender and willful architecture.
It's the acute optics that pitch me downward
into a maze of unrevealed canvas
unearthed and unexplained
and spreading into the heart of oblivion.
You know who loves you, wants to be there for you... when the symbolic ship of your existence begins to sink. Whoever runs to the lifeboats first was never your friend, colleague, or relation. These people are fair-weather individuals, who are only in a relationship with you when you give more than you take. Once the tide turns and your ship takes on water, you are the lone deck hand left with a pail to bail yourself out. Always surround yourself with other shipmates.

You cannot worry about offending other people. Everyone has their own level of tolerance, and walking around on eggshells to accommodate the most easily offended is akin to being in an abusive relationship. If that person is not right for you, then move on.
