Unnamed And Unexplained

Unnamed And Unexplained

I’m a man like so many

                              With a mask welded to my face

              Secretly searching for anything

Unnamed and unexplained

                                     Hoping for a glimpse

           Of a virgin something

That is unpolluted by religion and tradition

   Wondering if there is a secret door

                              That hides white on white thoughts

           Were criticism has never been given

     Where unconditional love

Is the only law

  Where sin does not exist

                                         Except as a myth

          In a faded story

Of a past dream

In fear of punishment I remove the mask

  And see the real fear in my past…

                                Of smelling darkness in daylight

              Of shedding blood without pain

Of hearing thunder without a storm

           Of being deceived by my own greed

       Of the endless last breath

                                       Before an un-forgiven death

Of a living suicide as I watch others fly
