With lack of time and romance,
You will feel objectified.
Compulsive nights and dopamine highs,
Will leave you drained and in need of rest.
When light shines on your actions,
The weight of the social consequences will be devastating.
You can communicate what you can handle,
But more will be thrown at you and dumped on you.
You will communicate what you can give,
But more will always be asked.
You can try to contain the impact,
But eventually the bomb will blow.
Without the truth,
Intimacy will die.
Without nurturing the soil,
Passion will die.
Without the integration into your life,
Commitment will die.
