Subconscious Twilight

Subconscious Twilight As I close my eyes I enter into a world, a consciousness of the unknown Deep into the abyss of darkness, into my subconscious realm of my own Mysterious shapes transform in my internal universe, within my minds eye Breathing slows down, the rhythmic beat of my heart keeps within time Tension within my muscles continue, the fight or flight response remains Endeavoring to travel deeper within myself, reality holds onto the reins There is this awareness of this reality that is just outside my closed eyes Somehow tries to draw me back to the memories of all truth and lies Just allow things to be, not to succumb to the voices within my own mind To be aware of my breathing, accepting the nothingness of some kind This single moment is all we have, this concept somehow eludes my grasp In this subconscious twilight, connected to the universal realm so vast The solemn entities that swirl within my mind as I stay still and just be My body seems to calm, like floating in a boat on a solemn still open sea I am just a mere student in this realm, lost in calmness and tranquillity Hoping that one day the stillness shall find me within my own humanity Many acts can be a learning process, dawning, as if we are born anew Thoughts transcend, lost in the void between reality and the askew In this realm, tranquility starts and confusion no longer has control Letting go of all the solitary pain and suffering that has taken their toll
