And I shiver and blink as I think
Incredulous it seems, not a first
But rather of the lasting memories
Holding fast, in a past the present never thought
Seams and up and down our path
Metered noises I have walked
Enveloped by dark, entranced by fear
Of soon knowing what isn't or what wasn't
Smells of old, steps I knew here
Despite my prayers and tears
Held back by eyes wide on cheeks white
Reaching blind for the beginning of the end
Near what started as smiles
Turned to quivering lips bit by chattering teeth
Forward to the left or to the right have drew me to a door
A door pounding loud with pulse
My trembling digits open wide
My heart beats on a hinge with a subtle creak
Whispers and winds of my presence expected
Sent scurries of restless spirits abounding through myself
And a lifeless blackened room within myself
And the lonely shelf beyond my eyes
And the fated hole, jolting shocks
Vine awaking so vividly unclear
My soul went still in my memory of nothing after
What I thought I found, only to forget
In what was known for an hour of seconds, a lifetime of moments
Is neither of my knowledge, confusion, or being now, nor will it ever be
Till life is death, till death is knowledge, and knowledge is life
Amen
