Clarity is Sought


Clarity is Sought

You try so hard to flee and fly away
from this nightmare, from this scene,
the forests so green, they beckon you on;
to escape cleanly – your goal and dream –
that’s where you come from – there and back,

falling and screaming into an abyss
and surrendering your soul forever to
the mist so foreboding and so cruel,
yet comforting, for clarity is bright –
a jewel – and teaches you about him.

Though you hold him close – your dearest –
he confuses; torments,
you call for help – fear – you are alone in this,
and darkness – you can’t leave – not now;
you cry, beg, plea for escape from this hell.

Are you destined to flail, trip, fall,
to bear the brunt of this pain?
Is it too late? What does he gain? Against him,
you struggle to fly, ascertain, yet clarity is sought;
here you hide – in vain, you struggle –

strong but alone; fearing him, you,
those who seek your misery, your fall,
those who seek to lull you;
you cannot bring yourself to fall for him,
to trust in him, to see it through, and

play this game of chance and risk;
you bring him closer – hold him tight –
yet falter; he slips away from
the light. You only seek clarity, yet it runs;
you plea for it, for your turn and chance.

You call out, cry in, and within yourself
you seek solace, support, anything live,
anything from him; you need this, need him
to come for you, to free you from this abyss;
you are alone in your sorrow,

you must fight for him, not run from this,
face the hysteria and pain holding you close;
survive this field, survive this strife –
strong and with life – with him you are not,
but with yourself you must

be your ally, your greatest bane;
no middle ground – a balance you need –
much like clarity and strength –
strength of your soul you must hone –
you are alone, yet meant to be

in this life so chaotic and cruel,
in this life so full of duals and fire;
despite this mire, you must survive,
to spite the wrong and weak-filled mind –
you must be kind – even though you’re gone,

you are here, in tears but wiping
away all your fears of falling for him;
you can say adieu; his blessings are naught –
he is now gone from this life,
he was once sought but now he is gone.

You must stay focused with this clarity,
with a goal of victory that must be reached –
does your mind have this? Perhaps
you should stay in balance and in control;
you will fall if you cannot stand this.
