When I rejected knowledge I gained understanding.
When I rejected the pursuit of knowledge
Understanding was lost.
(sacrifice mind upon the cross)


No signs
What could be more real than dream?

Separate the “I” from “YOU”
What more could “I” ever do?

(Locked Away)
Collective individual
(Hard to Sway)
Futures unstable

What do we lose
In the unphonetics
Of thought?
A pure abstraction
Imagination wrought
Language a barrier
Much more than it’s not
There’s more to this
Than we’ll ever be taught


The end…………………………..

singalongaparadox, a pocket full of why
yeah, the formatting is annoying, but that's hardly your fault, and there’s me thinking I was the king of cut-and-shut word welding ;)

enjoyed the rhythm of this, there’s a lyric, sing-song, almost calliope quality to it… made me think of child’s rhymes- not that your writing is childish- but because in the seemingly harmless nonsense of children’s rhymes a darker, more sinister, more complicated reality if lurking…

I too like the small voice that mocks all narrator’s/ readers tenuous, tentatively erected certainties… thanks for the trip down the rabbit hole this was. best to you.
