[537] Darkness Behind Closed Eyes

Mind fails to stay still⁣⁣⁣
Heart knows its way around⁣⁣⁣
But in this jungle of the material world⁣⁣⁣
I feel lost, a rose wilting on my pillow of tears⁣⁣⁣
In dreams, I meet my saviour⁣⁣⁣
But how can I be saved from what I can’t name?⁣⁣⁣
I try to stay present, but distractions abound⁣⁣⁣
They say to wander is to wonder, but conflict drags me inside its abyss⁣⁣⁣
I seek love outside myself, but it fails⁣⁣⁣
I seek comfort within, but it’s always out of reach⁣⁣⁣
The mountain peak is where I find solace⁣⁣⁣
Eons spent here, cleansing my soul with the cold⁣⁣⁣
Is this where it all resides, or is it everywhere?⁣⁣⁣
Questions break the pattern, slashing inside of my skin⁣⁣⁣
My pain spills out onto others, but they absorb it all⁣⁣⁣
They say the canvas to hold it is as large as it can be⁣⁣⁣
So I imagine myself as large as I can be⁣⁣⁣
Limitless ever expanding consciousness bliss⁣⁣⁣
Rays of light exploding from my cloud of rain⁣⁣⁣
As my shadow finds solace in the noon of my attention ⁣
to everything and everywhere all at once
