    Do
    souls glide
    to
    essence
    by
    inner eyes
    formed
    of deeds
    committed
    in this
    life...?
    Is
    THIS
    life...?
    or
    a
    split second
    death
    determining
    what's
    next...?
    are we
    cognitive
    but
    stationary
    on scales
    tipping
    one way
    or
    the other
    by
    how we
    perceive
    one another
    and
    treat
    what we
    discover
    on edges
    of
    blue dreams
    on
    horizons
    of rotating light
    we call
    day
    and
    night...?
    Is
    the Sun
    a portion
    of my
    soul ?
    The Moon
    reflecting my
    level of
    control ?
    Heavenly
    bodies
    attracted
    through
    my
    action/reactions
    decisions
    or
    contractions
    of pupils
    under
    lids
    of
    evening
    shadows
    so
    when I
    blink
    I
    sink
    beneath
    seas of
    liquid
    conscious
    drifting in
    saline
    solution
    seeking
    sublime
    conclusions
    backed
    by
    earthly/bodily
    minerals
    leaving
    all
    things
    ephemeral...?
    Is
    my sleep
    really
    the
    triple darkness
    where
    I lay
    bare
    before
    The One
    who
    started
    this
    mystery
    without
    Him
    destined
    to
    end
    in
    misery
    Am I
    alive
    and
    breathing
    or
    lying
    quietly

    dreaming....

    a
    dream

    within
    a
    dream ?

    Wow!

    Take me there. Honestly, I love your writing skills! You briefly took me there into the heavenly realms abruptly... mmmmm...that was sooo sincere. My mental is loving it. Craving it like candy. Truly divine,delicious, and tastey. Feed it to me baby! ha ha ha. You got me hooked on that one. Wow... very nice. Thanks for the read. Explicit.

    yo i feel this here yo same questions i sometime have you hit on the head

    we on the same level
    GYPSYMAN & da street rebel
    put the pedal to the mettle
    still standing with the dust settles

    i might not have worded it the same way on this page
    but i'm on that wave
    the sun rays
    short days
    the way we behave
    time is infinite as we age

    one man one life
    trying to do right
    and see the light
    though outside it's night
    the third eye stays bright
    key on the insight
    to stay alert sharks attempt to bite
    one man one life
    trying to do it right
