“Yet Another Eternity”
The time sink of twilight thrusts forth
An eternity of stasis.
Streaked light, blurred sight, proves daunting
The task of navigation at hand.
Now, like before, am I as drained?
It’s the same as it ever was –
A variety of illusions,
Risky gambles, net zero gains.
Solace in a late evening bought
And paid for by morning’s energy.
Sanity now or much later?
A balancing of mental states!
This guided mind traverses through
Labyrinthine highways in an
Unending, spiraling vortex,
Trapping seconds, minutes, and hours.
