I stand at the edge of reality..
staring at the light up ahead..
that seems to promise happiness..
to gratify my lust and desires...
I surrender my fate vulnerably..
as I put trust in my blind faith..
I adore the compassion it showers,
that wasn't meant for the lonely..
I sense joy and bliss in abundance..
flowing freely in graceful cadence,
It touches the depths of my yearning..
tormented with grief and bemoan...
It makes my heart breathe again..
and brings my mind back to sanity..
as I yield my life to delusions,
that brings the purest of love,
into my life of hurtful sorrows..
bound in a world of bitter cold..
I feel the suffering swept away,
and the rage and fury extinguished,
in these very moments of ecstasy...
It feeds the endless ache of hunger,
like food that nourishes a soul...
dying from the pains of starvation..
But still I see the darkness....
on the edge of this waking dream,
as the leaping shadows are seen..
to bring me back to my misery..
and face the harshness it brings..
Merely as the mortal I am...
