    Sending up prayers
    like solar flares
    for all them upstairs
    Seeking a revelation from out the blue
    And riding a beam of light that was tru

    Disturbing darkness and all gloom
    Devastating my bare room
    with a symphony of tones
    from the unknown
    Neverland places and dry bones
    A vision was my quest
    One to put all others to rest
    Riding the silk road with a common thread,
    seeking that which is animating whats alive and dead

    Till upon the mirrored hall of self I came
    and on every glass was etched my name
    crossing fire burning lakes
    that licked oars of emotions like steaks
    At last I glanced upon your golden door
    I was lost and mad to know you were there no more
    Realising the journey wasn't over yet,
    I had come so far so nothing would I regret
    Forever in my vision was the image of you,
    In face of the false whats tru showed through
    Of every second of every hr of every day
    I count the moments we spend away

    In the cyclone in the depths of my mind
    Spins the eternal seamstress of all time
    Ennobling me with the centuries finest threads
    By comparison all else should be ripped to shreds
    The great work forever incomplete
    weaving the tapestry of my life, what a feat
    A work of immense intorsion (spiral twisting)
    mixing colors in alchemical proportions
    like potions for the third eye to ingest
    A work putting all psychedelics to rest

    This is deep
    I will have to read it again to fully digest
    but what I have grasped is excellent

    The words do take you on a trip, but I have to read reread it to pinpoint the dimension.
