The Drink To Reason



Its like a clear stone, fractal fragments.
Its like a dimensional transference,
molecular symbiosis.
Its like a language, unspoken yet
understood.
Brick by brick an stone by stone,
I build the remenence of my old self and
make it new.
Its like clear liquid, transparent emotion.
Its like natural cause, destiny destined.
Its like a manner accepted by time.
Claw by bloody claw i am stripped of mine
whole, and made into nothing for what I am.
Its like a person, me.
Its like a friend, you.
Its like a little blue ball floating
in nothingness, us.
Today I drink to the rest of my life.
The peaceful paradox, in a chaotic saga.
