Are you there? Just beyond reach, Behind that veil, The veil of space and time. Surreal it is… Things remain unsaid, Matters of the heart they say, But all that remains is just a void, A fall into nothingness, A perpetual state of grasping. Maybe it’s just a crazy game, And the mask takes over, Faking a menacing face of order, Suppressing the code of chaos, But the soul… It burns in a crucible of subtle flame, Wanting normalcy but stuck in the outer fringes. Fantasy it is, Cloaking an escapist comfort Underneath the sword of Damocles. The relentless pursuit still continues, And the veil still remains, At the end, Are you still there Friend?
