Illuminated Disillusion


Come find me, I’m here

Wading in the muddy depths

Sinking in the blackness

Air is a forgotten need

The weight bears down

An affirmation of faith

In what I know holds true

You’ll find me there

Caked in the truths that taunt

Safety of the stillness

Secure in the chains that bind

You think I’m broken?

Listen for the unspoken words

Close your eyes

Feel what is written

Look beyond, you’ll see

A simper that remains

In this solitary stance

The irony in a contradiction

    My favorite so far. “Truths that taunt.” Nice.
