I took myself down a dark road,
I strode into the desolate cave at its end,
I found, deep within, a still, cold pool.
I sank below the surface of the subconscious,
Past the primordial muck of this life,
I dreamt of nothing.
Devoid of even the concept of darkness,
I did not reach out to it,
Because I did not exist,
For that tiny eternity,
I felt nothing.

The edge of the abyss
Is the thrill of power
The hint of her presence
Blasting from the radio tower
Her hand reaching out
Is the cosmic transistor
Soothing waves deluge doubt
No force can resist her

Ice blue chilly
Shadow dark
Trapped in memory
Entropically stark
Struck by epiphany
Zeptoseconds for a quark
A self-fulfilling prophecy
Bitten by its bark

The only gold I can offer is sunlight
The only silver, the clouds a-lined
We seek out security in a world perishable
A bleak bout of surety in a whirl of variables
All lead away from that one perfect day
While dodging pendulums leaves time unswayed

Be careful
I forgot to mention
my heart
is proximity-activated

I just wanted to say I love you before
I'm not forty-four anymore
Cause 44 = 2 x 22
And those numbers mean you

Bury me beneath assumption
Obfuscate me behind illusion
Crush me under false proof
I'd love to be lost in your confusion
Where each epiphany and every realization
Is you
