Depths of Delusion

Posted: May 28, 2018 in Uncategorized

We live within the depths of a delusion
keep it simple stupid I’m embarrassed
all those unguarded moments.

Nothing so vulnerable as a trusting heart
might as well take a knife to it yourself
saves time in the long run simpler really.

But that’s no way out
even precise language artfully deployed
gets you only so far.

If it helps you understand
you’re that much worse off.

Every time you show yourself
you’re taking a chance
every time you come up for air.

Friend or foe you don’t know
could be birds of prey hovering up there.

You can try for truth or spin the illusion
a little faster.

You may churn up something authentic
or just make a bigger splash
before you sink.
