Symptom (freeverse)

we analyze it

we question it

we tear it apart

we look deeper

but get shallower 

all this and for what?

to lose something 

and gain nothing 

but confusion

that is our sin

to lose something so beautiful 

oppressing ourselves 

by our own means 

leaving ourselves trapped

going in circles 

we can't stop it

it's meant to keep going 

it's meant to keep losing itself 

continual and insufferable 

this is the symptom 

of our condition 

and it isn’t meant to be cured
