Dead Fish

Too long among the shadows
Leads one to doubt their form.
Comparisons are muddled at best.
Distorted figurines of faith
Over exaggerated 
Start to sound like truth
When stretched.

The mud was suitable for hiding
Buried among denied existence
Universes we'd rather not confront
Ecosystems dangerously tethered to our own,
Thriving in spite of our best efforts
To smother worlds
We never bothered to learn
Need no air to guarantee life.

Shutting down
The only light
Dead stardust dancing
Behind open eyes that will not see
The body becomes host

We barter our existence
Based on the weight of dead fish
In the barrel.

"...a stone, a leaf, an unfound door; a stone a leaf, a door. And of all the forgotten faces.

Naked and alone we came into exile. In her dark womb we did not know our mother's face; from the prison of her flesh we have come into the unspeakable and incommunicable prison of this earth.

Which of us has known his brother? Which of us has looked into his father's heart? Which of us has not remained forever prison-pent? Which of us is not forever a stranger and alone?

O waste of lost, in the hot mazes, lost, among bright stars on this weary, unbright cinder, lost! Remembering speechlessly we seek the great forgotten language, the lost lane-end into heaven, a stone, a leaf, an unfound door. Where? When?

O lost, and by the wind grieved, ghost, come back again."

Thomas Wolfe, Look Homeward, Angel

Maze Runner

This illusion of "happiness"
Keeps me miserable.
Chasing this man-made myth
Through a labyrinth of lies
Piled with the bodies of gods
Who died while claiming to be
The answer.

When you've tethered your self worth
To the thoughts and opinions of others
Lifelines unravel quickly
Leaving your faith
In yourself and in others
Stretched far too thin.
