Of power without force

         You need a lot
         of energy for
         love, and I'm
         a different per-
         son now. I've
         grown ordinary.

More often than not, it's unpleasant 
to remember the way I used to be.

Happenings of human life change so much, until re-stored by being heard. Listening offends every postulate of observa-tion.
