Pretentions, Perhaps

If you need smaller conversation from me
Don’t hesitate to appeal my generosity.
I am not as unbreachable as I may seem.

For this intricate and ornate wall
Of poetry erected amidst our common space,
A quieter soul eludes your sight.

Words are tremendously beautiful;
However far simpler things are staked
To contentment.

Perhaps it is the duality of man
To wager his fate upon the fertility of pretentions
Then vindicate his compassion in tranquility.
