I try to remain in the present…
However, I live in a constant war with gravity
In an instance — the trigger is pulled

Gravity gets activated in full force
I fall to my knees
Surrendering my grasp to the present
Drowning in the repressed
Wrapped in the arms of my despair
My depiction of the gates of hell

An alternate reality
A transcending paradox in which once crossed my mind
With no remorse…

Instantly consumed

Residing in the retrospect of my childhood
A never-ending maze
An everlasting dream
An unescapable nightmare

Where words can’t escape


Till the light of a new day awakes me
