La noche oscura del alma

everything is terrible
painful
obvious
disgusting
real

i fell and found
myself
mortified at this body
‘s weakness

fragility
swallowing at food and air
trembling
in meat
terrified, truly
at the possibility that
nothing
is

shadow searching shadows
for meaning

matter destroyed, reduced
and recombined
to create new compound matter
organic,
synthetic
mined from geo-chrysalis Earth

elemental life-fueled machines
ideas of self-idea

reality
is a secondary negation
of criticised perception
I am
thought animated vessel
encouraged by analogous narcissism
the
trembling
will not
abate
I have become too aware
consciousness has stopped
processing
automated motor function
i.e
breathing
manually inflating lungs
pressing against water
drowning
in dry air

organism dreaming i’m people
creating
in the void between spaces
validated
by the illuminations of other people

mannerism, language
pattern analysis
a matrix of identity
learned
from reflections of
exterior knowns

“all that we see or seem
is but a dream
within
a dream.” Poe
there are evidences in literary
apocrypha
that these are not anomalous
considerations
but
pre-realized designs

as though knowledge purposes
the animate workings
of beings
exhaled, and inspired
by the curious seeking answers
epiphany
ego convinces self of origin

all that is
exists
because it is observed,
shared data
space and time are constructs
of biological
sensory limitations

the true, actual now
is impossible to perceive
as it actually is
microscopic
atomic
energy floating in infinite waves
experiencing numberless selves
all
One

We
obliterated, reimagined
phantoms
exchanging pieces of phantom
