Sometimes I feel like the human condition resembles parched soil; it’s relentless need for quenching. I appeal to your humanity. Do you have it?

The hopeless search for meaning. Is it hopeless? There is meaning in everything when interpretation and perception play their part. Defences of the psyche. Cynicism? Maybe…

The infinite emptiness of nothingness. What lies ahead as the ultimate destination. The void we wish to fill with magnificent ideals of elysium. Pessimism versus deluded optimism? Maybe…

Fear of isolation. What we require to build in metaphorical bricks and mortar to avoid those moments when we sit alone, with ourselves. Yet those moments, to me, are pure. Autonomy. Release from the shackles of existence. A real state of being. Reversed psychology.

The phenomenological stance – My experience is mine. You cannot replicate. How could you ever feel the exact same feeling I have for any human or otherwise moment?

Separation of selves. Individuals. Connections sought for reassurance in the bleak.

Yet I search for meaning. We all do, and will continue to do so. Unless you have fallen from the precipice of humanity. So I plead to yours. There is too much cold, weak, narcissism in this world already. When I look you in the eyes I am here, now, with only my self to show.

This is not poetry. It’s just a slice of self indulgent thought.

    Although not poetry the construct is poetic. Beautiful reflection on the condition of self and the things we experience. While we all experience many of the same concepts the individual core of each entity classifies that in the construct of our consciousness. “I am mine” : ) – I adore how you explore the self contained wonder most of us hold and the fragile nature of existence. The pursuit of meaning, a desire to be as is and reach metaphorically. Wondrous language, soft exquisite lines and so stimulating intellectually speaking. Well written provocative reflective magnificence x
