Shapeshifters


sensitivity to numbness,
distrust of trust,
drug-induced euphoria.
Reason clashes with Emotion
What is true? Which 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.
