Spectacular: A Poem

Justification
As self-protection
Conforming and modifying
As appeasement
Avoiding conflict and isolation
Caution breeds buffers
From defensive
And accusatory ridicule
~
Specifications provide ample detail
To take in what is spoken
Bubble-wrapped in hopes of swerving
Out of the realm
Of potential harm
~
Yet, another layer
Of self approaches
Crutches
To ensure feasible guise
Indeed valuable
But simultaneously reinforcing
Fear
~
Protective mechanisms of necessity
Effectively unsure and unremarkable in self
Systems of survival
Ascribed to a newer fashion
Marred as harbored ways
In which truth diminished
Countless moments
~
Countering the power
The absorbed essence of depth within
Leaked out vapors
A universe of cautionary measures
Of not enough
~
A standard protocol
A well-fed mind
To distinguish safe from unsafe
Tangible from intangible
Moved as straight line
Weaving as rigid thread
~
Misinterpretations, thrust upon
Opinions lavished up
Loquacious torturous comebacks
Invasive obtuse daggers
Rejection aligned with failure
Inadequacy piled upon inadequacy
~
All this, harbored
Until the mirrors
Tumbled forth
Shattered shards
Pierced and broken
And in this place: opened
To no-evaporation
~
Stretched and vulnerable
Seasoned and rectified
Blanketed and vivid
Spectacular in her coming
