Be Alive

Breathe, the nourishment for the body

Our first foray was Herculean

Leaning to terrestrial life after months of submergence in aqua

Breathing the yearnings of the lungs, to flourish the flesh and strengthen the bone

Lashing the heart to beat on

From which the noggins feast like a beast

Choke, choke and all that takes your breath away

Starving the gluttonous pneumo-vore of that which it cannot live without

Causing the consciousness to stumble and tumble, the once raging heart to crawl in need, crippling the muscles of will, and amputating the valves

Plummeting to a dream state; oh… the somniferous Melody of jabbers from the living

Reality dissolves as voices become distant

With progressive permanence of the sleep state, the world fades out, and a new world fades in

A state that differs from sleep only by your inability to evade your demons, in a spellbound world, by wakefulness

  2. Oh yes, the enigmatic realm that little have survived to tell the tale. The enigmatic realm of transcendence.

    Thanks a million for the comment, as always.

    Life is fleeting!!! Indeed it is.
    An apt description sir, being born being alive, taking that 1st breath. Then taking the last, tipping the scale maintaining that oh delicate balance into the enigmatic realm that is the “unconscious”.
