With impervious focus

I peer into a world of my own design

Where my thoughts echo through dimensions

Guilding reality

Distorting the cognitive plain

I am free from imperfections

And my vision... absolute

As I stare into the crystalline

Yet why does my focus betray me?

How long have I stood within this hourglass?


My mind resonates in the clarity

The vociferous fragmentation

Of a self, once forsaken

...buried beneath...

Staring back at me

Where dimensions merge

I stand, unresolved

With ten thousand regrets

Slipping through my fingers


Drown out the resonating reflection

The defect of this eye's forged mockery

At the throne, my touch is golden

My breath... is golden

Wrought by overwhelming sacrifice

But why can my mind transcend reality?

With deafening reveries of what I've abandoned

...of what I've forsaken

...of what bleeds within...

Drown out the silence!

Focus before this evolves!


I stand beside myself

One bleeds from the ears

One bleeds from the eyes

Crowned in reality

Immersed in the sand

Drown out the silence

So I can sleep
