Phase I.

 

 

 

Staring at the ceiling –

it’s a lot closer than I remember.

My eyes in the ashes

My heart in the water

But my lips, untouched.

 

The shadows and the Forms transcend

over my being

Contingency afloat.

 

This is my Hell.

 

 

 

 

Phase II.

 

 

 

I am detached,

 

gazing at the

conventional morality,

false values,

and half – hearted ideals and visions

that compose my environment.

 

Why

 

When I have water and breath

 

should I desire anything less than life?

 

 

I am alive

 

So why should I reach

for the dreams of the dead?

 

 

We beg for dirt in our veins

and get upset when it begins to kill us.

 

 

I refuse to be satisfied with mere existence,

for my soul is beyond the stars.

 

 

 

Filching the dirt out –

 

And it’s funny,

almost,

 

how Heaven burns just like Hell.

 

 

Though maybe it’s brighter.
