Obscured, scattered visions
From the edge,
To its out

Assures, bold collisions
From the inside,
Of doubt.

Creatures of thought
Through infrared sight

Are troubled
And fraught
And burned, through their bright.

The repo motioning,
Of our minds
To the re-positioning,
Of what’s sane

We feign faux
Standing reasons

For focused thoughts –
We hope to gain.

Recaptured, electrons
Reflected, through dust
Protects, a proto vision
Through their chariots –
Of rust.

A single stage reaction
Streams –
Its measured gains

By framing pure abstraction
Through its telescopic –
Skeins.

Raging through the darkness
Through the swaths
Of sharp ringshine

The mind re-blends its starkness
And adopts –
Its pure divine.

We see the terror
We feel its pain
We see the horrid
Hiding –
Within its miserable shame.

We see the wicked
And take its blame
As we are the punishment
Striking –
Behind its dust defined flame.

Look closer –
And you find
A complex balance, intertwined
Within a nature
That’s just naturally,
Undefined.

Like a storm cloud –
On the darkest, day of a days
A shuttering thunder, from deep away
A sharp eruption, from dull decay
A quickening crack, to full astray

Then explosion –
From an anger,
On full display.

Dueling sparks
And juggling fire
A flame –
Starves the dark
From its pure desire.

Raged with age
A force blown out
A flame –
Flees its stage
When fueled by doubt.

Upon the brink
It cannot feel
A flame –
Cannot think
That it’s really, real.
