The twist in my gut; that deep-seated pain; that long needle in my eye.
And as I lie about not knowing, feeling the hurt wind through the veins of my life,
There is no worry as to what the end will be.
There is no need to know that; it will come soon enough.
That demon seed of our desires, with wryly fingers and wilting laughter,
It curls the vines of time around our gasping lungs, our mouths gaping open,
Our face contorted by the screw.
One day after another, this seems to never end, and in the end, we call it
The time of consciousness, the time of being aware of what is possible, and
What we are capable of.
Living consciousness and losing our grip as the coil tightens.
Going on, worsens, or is better; hard to see the difference in the end.
And writhe in the loop of life
No cycle of right, dead-end of wrong, just the twist of life
And that old forgotten lyric that we use to sing.
