Purgatorial Incarceration

A spiral cone of silence,
threatens to deafen me.
All alone,
I feel crowded.
Oppressed by my very freedom,
I decline to choose,
yet that is my choice.
Blinded by feelings,
I may never understand.
I see a whirling pool of confusion,
roiling beneath my feet.
It tries to pull me under,
to make my control of nothing,
whither away...
Into the final emptiness,
of everything pure.

------------------
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll be among the stars.
-Unknown-
So let the sun beat down upon my face,
It's warmth will dry my tears.

smile...

that juxtaposition of polarities, so delicately precise (good description of your work, btw--delicately precise)

(Didn't you write a double Helix too?)

"Oppressed by my very freedom,
I decline to choose,
yet that is my choice."

nodding

I remember somebody telling me once that not choosing was a choice in itself.

(Seems like "somebody" learned from experience, huh?)

*hugs you*

I thought I'd look for archive treasure, and seeking, I have found. *smile*
