Sharing

i am not used to not being me
i am not used to compromising
i have always lived selfishly
always thought,
it was a self born right
it was not taught
but because i could not sleep at night
it was the belief i bought
but the loneliness was its cost
and loneliness was never sought
i am not used to not being me
to extending,
this self built, often flimsy reality
this self contained dome
that appeared so remote
and barely connected to the telephone
i hope i will not sink
and that i will continue to float
