I am removed from self
Removed from heart
Removed from this world
.
Empty void once self
Empty void heart
Empty void this world
.
Nothingness all self
Nothingness all heart
Nothingness all this world
.
Perception is not the self
Perception is not heart
Perception is not this world
.
Eternally removed from self
This empty void is heart
Nothingness all this world
Perception of the empty void nothing
.
No self
No heart
No world
.
Empty

Nothingness all same no one

    The poem’s final arrival left me alienated from impulse in a cynical detachment from the messiness of life. Shelley suffered the same.

    • Do you suffer so?

      Nothingness does include the cycles of suffering but also the not suffering. The empty aspect of “cynical” is quite hopeful as it is inclusive of nothing. πŸ™‚ Being removed from pain and suffering is quite lovely. Pain, suffering and whatnot are always about, even for the enlightened

      The reference to Shelley warms me.

      40 odd years ago I knew a family named Keim. In Tallahassee. The elders would be about 90, now. πŸ™‚
