That Voyage To Self Discovery

Withdraw yourself back from
everything mundanely sensible and sensual. Trust nothing you
see till you see
what can’t be seen.
Believe in nothing you
feel, till you are
ready to peer into
darkness that seers have
procrastinated for years. Wind
yourself like a ball
of yarn, bind yourself
to a center that
belongs to you, that
you belong to. Go
deeper, down into the
most obscure depths of
your crevices. Find yourself
in the shadow of
the glow of a
bedazzling pearl that hides
in a broken oyster,
engulfed in fathomless darkness.
Sharpen your nails against
the broken edges of
the oyster shell. Hold
the magnificent pearl between
your teeth. Claw your
way out of the darkness.
Be mine, once again.
