Sweet Escape

Sweet escape

The mind’s surrender

Serenade of oblivion—

I close my eyes

And it goes, goes

The world

Absence of thought

In the darkness of being

Silence

All reconsiderations

This mind is empty now—

And the stars may shine beyond

But this twisted moon is in eclipse

And I am sinking

Down into the blackest hole

Of existence—

You see me, but I

No I do not see you,

I think no more

Therefore

I am

Not.

  1. Chris G! Keep writing great lines: “All reconsiderations / This mind is empty now— / And the stars may shine beyond” Sounds real good and dig the “poetic Cartesian negation” of sorts at the end.

  2. Aaahh!! Those moments of nothingness! Sometimes I think, how would it be we just ceased to exist everytime we closed our eyes shut (excluding blinking)! Seriously… how WOULD it be?
    I have heard this about cats, that when they close their eyes, they believe that no one can see them (opposite to what you said.. and yet.. quite a thought!) 🙂

    Loved your intense poem, Chris.. I know I totally went off base with my rantings.. just felt like writing it here.. It’s just that this poem totally got me thinking!
