[496] The Knowing

The need to be understood drives all of us in our conversations. In all our little body movements and all that we signal on social media.

[495] Life Is Not The Same

I live a fictional life of self-examination⁣and an attempt to personify wind in my steps⁣Futile ends of euphoria and its eternal chase⁣To forget the ends but remember the epiphanies⁣A glimpse of the flight about to end⁣I remember to be unafraid of the fall this time⁣and focus on the journey from ⁣where I was to where [...]

[494] The Middle of Extremes

Perhaps you will find me when I am lost⁣⁣⁣Perhaps you will lose yourself in the process⁣⁣⁣Maybe the quiet will deafen your senses⁣⁣⁣Maybe the rhymes will give you the peace you require⁣⁣⁣This exile of feeling feelings has gone on for too long⁣⁣⁣You live, perhaps, in all the maybe’s of your head⁣⁣⁣The vague anxiety halts time in [...]

Voices in my head⁣work behind the scenes⁣Connectional severity⁣A life stretched on synapses⁣I think to just forget⁣a vial of ecstasy⁣Alive only in dreams⁣As my light keeps flickering⁣⁣Follow all the fire⁣to the scene of the crime⁣Sequences on a movie screen⁣plays behind the sheath⁣The origin always evades⁣The end is always seductive⁣A fall hides in the blinking⁣The foreshadowing is [...]

Stay here ⁣Don’t go back ⁣to there again⁣The rapture in the mind ⁣is real as real can be ⁣The mind expands ⁣when it lets go of now⁣and flows with the feeling⁣Of flow itself⁣⁣Let yourself forget the self⁣Connect to every epiphany you forget⁣Don’t bring it back to the world of time⁣Bring eternity into the moment of [...]
