Awakeness

No essence of yesterday constrains the ideas that float through memories mingling with truth yet consuming with their ever-present demands for present realities overlayed with the image of things feared yet impossible to ignore in their obsession

Unwelcome terrors dance their footsteps on concentric paths within a mind overwhelmed by the grief for lives no longer present and pasts lost into a darkness that never gave them the chance to be consummated into tomorrows’ rebirth

Pages of senses’ touched dreams of self-control sink beneath molten stones driving them toward earths’ theoried centers yet lacking in the presence once believed within those thoughts to define the object of the only action still to be importance to forgotten pictures of happiness

Calm truths pass ungrasped in their simplicity above the segregated banks of rivers unstoppable of emotion liquified by imagination into footpaths of moistened sand with each broken pebble a single blade’s stroke away from its perfect silence yet never finding its partner within overwhelmed mazes of absence
