Velvet Astraea Dido

Parallel Universe

I stare. An empty gaze into nothing.
Into an illusion of an object I see.
And now I know and yet I don’t understand.
And what is this in front of me?
An image of an imaginary life.
A lie.
A terrible lie.
I disgust.
I pity.
Thrown back into the thought again.
Shadows and lullabies.
Tomorrows said goodbye.
And my memory fades
and my movement halts.
And I stare.
A blank stare.
Nothing to think about,
nothing to do.
No problems unsolved.
No worries to befall.
And yet in this small world within limitless boundaries,
I found peace.
And yet, the turmoil of an undeciphered heart
wraps the question of yesterday and now.

Wind blows hard, still no muscles bound,
bound to change.
And so I drift together with the wind.
And I won’t smile, and I won’t frown.
I stretch my soul to touch the clouds and make it mine.
And I tie it with my sorrow and I burn it with my misery.
Let it die.
Let it fade.
Burst it into tears of rainy days’ summer
and dry season’s winter.
And I stare.
Into an empty space and time.
Movements gone.
Following me down.
And I drain an envelop lust for space.
The void I see in front of me,
asking to enter within.
And I see another me
…staring.
