a poem dedicated to the recurring patterns that make us human.

It's happening now and it's always been like this

You find some place to call home-

Maybe not a place, but someone.

You settle in, you settle down

You seem to think

it'll be different somehow.

You look at your state

Caged, but free from yourself.

And for a moment you're home.

For a moment, there was only a storm

And no consequence.

For a moment you're as lost as one could be

And for a moment-

You can be without the pain of what was.

And after a while it comes

Like a staggering great wave-

Like a riot, like a rave.

It comes, it comes,

And pulls you apart once again.

And so you tear it all apart

Feeling nothing in your heart-

burn down your home

You wonder and roam,

In search of some place,

maybe someone.

and oh such a sickening surprise-

and you whisper as you writhe

In this labyrinth you carved for yourself,

"It's happening now and it's always been like this."
