.. in the night. What’s important?
When you open them, do they wonder
ever, what’s the meaning?
the knife of analytical thought
the weight of emotional rupture
what explodes inside you?
in wonderment, we may continue
to exist as we did the night before
as a wide-eyed tourist soaking
in that patina of significance
that we seek in excellence and
in memories.Comforted in our
thoughts and heart, but never so
inside the engine that ruins everything;
This dichotomy, that’s as permanent
as our consciousness, remains standing
discretely in the corner, every.single.time;
desires, as distinct as they are from us
propel the actions, that make us
the subject in our own story.
Maybe, when you close your eyes,
in the longer night, that’s when
you really open them. To close the dichotomy
by opening another.
