My Parenthesis

By Digital Dart

My Soliloquy,

This is not (given) to you:
It's taken.
This is the part I hate:
Follow (myself) down.

My eyes crawl from socket to taste our words.
Consumed by every angle, appetite (un)curbed.
Brain food, a healthy diet we share (to)gether.
I think not. I think only of (you).

Words in parenthesis are closer than they appear. I saved my sixth for you.

    Interesting format used here. I hope the art of reading and, as a result, self growth never die. I love when something comes along and just consumes you to the point that you can't look away. Very cool :)

    High praise coming from you! Thank you for the input. It's a given that I have trouble looking away ever. Sharing that with anyone, however briefly, is sacred.
