Closing on a line that separates two dimensions;
Like the glass of a mirror – [that’s merely an illusion]
To say, what if one could draw closer towards him or herself?
Like one would when leaning in toward a reflection.
[What if we walked toward each other?]
No mirror though. No, just a junction –
Appearing and breaking – through panes of
Souls. We’ve dared to contemplate the stirring
[Darkness] We sometimes find [Hidden and buried]
Trapped in me and you. [Reflected in each others
[It’s][ Manfest[ed]ing into a reality – [What should be
Spoken] breaking through [pin pricked holes] thoughts
Bursting – pulsing – Affecting will – confusing emotions.
Simple Thoughts destroy worlds inside of worlds;
Kill families and friends – while at the same time,
[Destruction – self reflection – sometimes]
Holds the power to turn nobodies – [a never meant to be]
Into heroes that could change the world.
But only – ever – if – the inexplicable and unthinkable
Were dared to be challenged – the path – at length, walked –
Through – to the end. [Step into the void of programmed lies]
Fight the notion that this is the way it’s meant to be.
Bend on that line – lean forward now – push into it.
[Into yourself or another] Nostalgic relapses – misfiring synapses –
[Convulsing involuntarily – a crack[ed] reality]
Folding one’s being inwards and melding into a singularity;
Emerging on the other side of what may be truth.
[Closer to death]
We may find ourselves staring into state(s)
We’ve tried to convince ourselves – never existed.
Catastrophic annihilation of the self may result.
If we [Choose to] struggle to accept that in each of us exists
A gateway to another realm in which our own truths
Are founded – or for others it will mean isolation
In the most secluded and empty ways of existing.
They might as well be dead – They are the walking dead –
In them – many crossroads intertwine at – that line.
Stunned and silenced by the flickering facets [Static]
[Like staring through a diamond]
Standing [still] in time – pause. [This will become a grave]
[What choice] Analyzed and malfunctioning.
Stopped by chance and excess of choice. [Lack of example]
Killed by love. The kind that should have cared
To exemplify what that word means. Love exampled
Immorality – [Every wicked thing] Examples of what love is not.
Remains etched into flesh and soul – [some]
While knowing what is not – may never come to understand what is.
A confusing [misunderstood] state. [Heart] – Between – [Mind].
Added to the equation of improbability and desperation.
[More often than not – resulting in self told lies]
Me – Between – You – Between – Me between another
Between you. – And back again – [Where we are going
Is not relevant until we understand where we’ve been]
Yesterdays minutes – [a mysterious realm]
Where more often than not – truth is hidden.
Wrapped in lies. Lies equalling truth.
New truth. Y[our] truth. Swallow truth.
Force feed truth / and we phase into those days / haze.
Days filled with hours of bickering between – loved ones –
The – outsiders looking – listening in – [from another world]
Programmed. Day by day – Too Hate. Too destroy. Too – shut – off.
And in that reality – of the past – splayed bright red
Against the white of spirit. – Anger kicking into intoxicating
Level’s. Malfunctioning rationality and — spat out of that plane.
Enter/Now/Here/Today – Gripping in hand a piece of an answer.
Written on tissue paper.
Most of us don’t choose to give up our purity.
We’re forced into submission and painted black.
[Tossed into the world]
Today – Revert back to reminders forgotten – rage-
[Good days were days when no new scars appeared]
As our desires to be loved overcome our passions
To stand out. – [Pits us against one another]
Still between me and you and here and there –
No distance has closed and though we are moving
We’re standing still. [Even good days are bad days]
The days we’ve thought we’ve loved – can be chalked
Up to fantasy – brevity of the self – convincing the soul
Of plausible desires that could come to be – and save.
Revive. Resuscitate. Pull each other through – to the other
Side and come back to a plane where the only direction
