Or so it seems...






Standing in front of a pool of water,
Gazing at the depth increased manifold,
The consciousness searching for my origin,
The eyes feasting on the clarity yet untold,
I loved the ugly reflection inside,
I liked my universe smiling back at me,
The same scum, the similar marshes,
The sultry, simmering, summer swamps
The hungry bog with its doomed tentacles,
Spreading the plague; through irresistible clamps,
I was merely looking at an artificial pit,
With a mirror base,
That produced the oceanic mirage,
Recreating the depth,
Rewriting the history,
Refashioning my past;
Entranced I stood,
Bound to the now beautified ugliness,
By a conscious surrender of the search,
I felt tired and weary,
Or so it seemed…

how one looks within and finds a treasure trove of trinkets- ready to be rubbed, shined and kept in the alcoves of concsience or discarded after a moment's pleasure... this search for the within, from the without, when the ugliness becomes beautiful and vice versa...all this comes out so well in these words...
or so it seems ;)
