pain breaks alone into a depth forgotten
claiming to see things through for what they are
you move from thought to feeling
within a darkness fallen back and onto hopes forged to not last
you're there
to be just for a moment longer
emerging as a warrior of truths retold
not following and followed not
just as a point of ends and no returns
a Sisyphus of wisdom circling back to zero
with answers given for those questions which don't cut
you're there
there you are to just be
in simple motion of becoming
another you, or just an other self to bear
with when future flows right into frames of understanding
a certainty too close to limits drawn by itself
too far in guesswork rightly summoned
to storytell a life lived to foretell
