I want to break out
Let the cocoon shatter and I’ll fly inward to the depths of the darkness of truth
It isn’t enough to “want it,” and trying is counterproductive
Cynical lazy teachers, cynical lazy students
I’m finding the crystallized core in each particle of wretched thought
Watching the tsunami of chemicals flood my body as I purge lifetimes of digested deceit
Is there a bottom?
I imagine I’ll find out, when I’m catapulted back up by the atomic impact of love’s firey rage and buoyant indifference
