Mind

Darkness absorbs thoughts as each follows nature
Drifting second to second
Embodiment of light when first it connects
Through grayscale’s moderate depths
Deceptive differentiations from monochrome ink
Limits cease to distinguish
Hope existing no longer
If ever it had
Memory unclear
Its presence forgotten
How to regain what may never have been

Purity
Not truth
Simple absence of form
Constraints ceasing to mold
Soul walls rendered metaphysic
Dust of ages in darkness’ thoroughness
Tacit creativity surrenders to absence
Self only thought exercises
Emotion repetition’s shadow
Mirror of other selves
Themselves limitless echoes

Freedom’s searches become discouraged
Without light
Peaceful possibilities extinguish
Spirit’s dreams
