purples

it is not good to be sensitive, to understand undertones and be confounded by overtones. it is not good to be sensitive, to see the slightest adjustment in expression and be overwhelmed with knowing what it took to suppress a full reaction. it is not good to be sensitive to words penned in different time zones yet felt at the same moment. it is not good to be sensitive to dreams and those who for better or worse share them in silent grief. it is not good to be sensitive to perceptions of right and wrong, and to choose one or the other based on how many won’t be harmed. it is not good to be sensitive in this world, where sensitivity looks like a fake plant not requiring water. it is not good to be sensitive, not when there’s no one near to recognize and comfort the unrelenting sorrow of an invisibly weeping breeze.
