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,
though 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 you seek –
here you hide – in vain, you struggle –

strong and 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 –

to play this game of chance and risk –
you bring him closer – hold him tight –
you falter. He slips away
from the light. You only want clarity, but it runs –
you plea for it – for your turn and chance.

You call out, cry in, and within,
you ask for solace, support –
anything he’ll give. You need this – need him
to come for you - to free you.
You are alone in your sorrow – your fall.

You fight for him – running from this –
face the hysteria and pain holding you close –
survive this field – 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, though meant to be

in this life so chaotic and cruel –
in this life so full of duals and fire.
Despite your tire, you 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.
Once sought but now he is gone.

Staying focused –
victory once reached.
Do you have this? Keeping true,
in balance and control.
When you fall.
