ways of living X

Written by: andrew delapruch

cold & dead inside,
unable to fathom the
kind of emotions that
make others walk around
with elegant smiles,
unable to make sense of
anything of the heart,
whatsoever, the mind
wins out, the mind decides,
for this person, the mind
dictates & determines
every movement with 
intricately acute 
measurement, reducing
all aspects of life to 
problems that can be 
solved without the heartbeat
growing anything beyond
that subtle, almost silent 
tap, which others might
find themselves having in
a library setting, or just
before they drift off to 
sleep.
