Pic: Self

lights flash
blinding the eyes
short circuiting
the brain,
memories erase
in moments
that trigger,
a known
but intentionally
ignored truth,

ends
and beginnings
happen
simultaneously,
distanced by
a time
which seems
to have overstayed
its inherited
eternity,

reality dawns
like a spectre
of darkness,
an eventuality
however,
that the mind
deep inside
had already
forseen,

the chaos within
brought
to the fore
by the lights
outside,
numbing
the senses
that  dared
to dream,
of a brighter
alternate reality,

and the acceptance
of truth,
is always
a hard battle
to fight,
till all
is lost
beyond
egos reclaim,

the water
that flows,
washing away
all those
defeated
notions,
in this moment
of loss,
singes the heart
like
an acid’s burn,

the scars
that are left
where dreams
once lived,
are sealed
in tombs
of impermeable
stones,
with headstones
deceptively
etched with
lies,

and as
a world
crashes,
amidst
those relentless
flashing lights,
i dig
some graves
of my own
tonight,

so rest in peace
the truth
of my dreams,
as reality wins
this biased battle,
i’ll ressurect
you again
one day for sure,
but today
your surrender,
is my
only reprieve,

so tonight
my dear dreams
i bury you deep,
deep enough
for them
to believe,
that you did
eventually die,

and for me
to go on
pretending,
to consciously
live,
the reality
of this
annoyingly
pretentious life.
