Lies Renewed

.
.
.
With every line I draw, every task I do,
Ouroboros rebirths creation cycles in my head,
Self consuming from the end back to the start,
Perpetually renewing, hopeless does not matter.
.
Turning, turning I cannot help but to think of you,
I remember all the words you have so casually said,
Each one ending our promises never to part,
That we are yet together does not matter.
.
I would bid this absurd returning life adieu,
If I could avoid the reflexive pain that I dread,
Cold serrated indifference cuts twisting in my heart,
That you are not aware does not matter.
.
I am painting, transforming into color, the misery review,
Ghostly dreams, ephemeral love, all are my dancing dead.
Paintbrush in hand, I am recording lies renewed as art,
That you can not see does not matter.

    Lies are in a way- desire. Desire for a different outcome, an alternate reality to a previous circumstance. To discern lies from truth is a matter of putting aside the mind. Lies are ephemeral, truth is self evident… and yet both are thought forms. Before truth and lies, there are no words. Perhaps that is why aboriginal people have no words for either – no need!
    Your poem alludes to this primordial point, well done. 🙂

    these guided tours
    of the heavens – all ablaze –
    alas this blindness!

    lacking sense enough to drink –
    I merely gargle…
