we do not write about

we do not write about
what we do not know
the so-called visionaries
in a frantic world
savoring chances taken
mourning lost opportunities
advancing with unmatched passion
a mere reflection of our double-life

we do not write about
what we do not know
but of the esoteric
world inside our heads
of displaced bullets
or the bothersome sometimes
bull-headed black holes in our souls

we do not write about
what we do not know
but of pain and suffering
or pleasure (possibly pure ecstasy) 
and sometimes someone listens
to the stirrings of our souls

    How beautiful....I concur...Sometimes we embellish what we have but tasted to make it more beautiful for others.....Lovely write....

    Nice write. :) I would go so far as to say that we cannot write about what we do not know.
