Stark Emptiness

The sensitivity to numbness,

the distrust of trust,

drug-induced euphoria.

Reason clashes with Emotion

What is true? What is illusion?

What I see and hear, or what I feel?


A shift in perception

creates conceptual clarity.

white noise in the mind

gives equanimity.


I see you in a different light.

each layer being peeled apart,

hollow words falling off, byte by byte,

leaving nothing to imagination.


The stark emptiness of your core

is non-refillable reality.
