Lethal

I can’t decide what’s more lethal,

Innocence or ignorance??

I break down,

thinking of that woman, who is always unsure about her life and pays bills of people’s sorrows that she never ordered;

and how the idea of distress changes when I come to realize 

that I’ve been doing the same.

I gather myself, close my eyes and shriek of pain,

until I kill that woman inside me.

Then, I go looking for new books;

discover new characters to adapt the most absurd and miserable one,

obvious of all the terrible things that I’m putting myself into.

How do I let my brain know that it’s too naive to adapt characters that end up making me woeful and weak??

And in that very moment,

I fail to decide what’s more lethal,

Innocence or ignorance??
