Abyssalis

Do you lie
awake
And wonder?

Sempiternal oceans
Behind closed eyes

Expanding

Moulding

Melting.

Sempiternal oceans
Behind closed eyes

Anxiety-battered,
A sightless shoreline

Spills
(In salted breaths)
Over sleep,
That final fortress
– The last refuge –
Of the knotted mind.

Here,
Lost to landscapes
Of infinity,
The rampant psyche

Races.

Sempiternal oceans
Behind closed eyes

There is no escape
No shallow respite

For eyes that have glimpsed
Colours
As they were,
Names being stripped.

For veins that have carried
Fractals of hope
In too-human vessels.

No.

The wonderer
Is Fated
To wander

The primal Eden
Long forgotten
By pacified spirits

The boundless empire
Of the blind.

The sempiternal oceans
Behind closed eyes.
