I Have Left Myself - Poem by Kyle Schlicher

The unknown
fascinates
teases
the known.

Look, here it calls.

Here!

Here lies the answer
to old
forgotten questions
dying
in the dust
beneath the bed.

The unknown
glowers
in semi reprehension
at the vileness
with which
the truth has spoken.

Look, here it shouts!

Here.
Herein is the simple
spoken truth
dying a diseased death.

The unknown
is leaving.

I must leave with it.
