Freetense

We spend lifetimes looking for
authenticity
reciprocity
sincerity
honesty
truth
and twice as long applying their lessons before we’ve learned them

We desire virtue
but not its ends
beauty
only as far as it bends

When we are flayed of our pretenses
Then what do we have left?
survivalism?
instinct?
love?
or
no
thing?
