Sentience

Sentience

I wander the pathways of my mind.

I walk down every nerve, arcing through layers of bone and sinew
Down every vein, sluggishly painted blue
Every artery, cursing richly crimson
Down the road every taut tendon takes
I do not know, what I hope to find

I wander the pathways of my mind.

In the infinite silence of my chilled, still heart
A confluence emerges, of blood and froth
Wrathful agitation, but see
Focussing on it completes my paradoxical peace

I learn so much from my own heart’s beat

And in that expanse, that paradise of self
That I delve in, through the levels of my own Hells
The world is louder and quieter than ever, its sounds
Resonate in my marrow, but hollow, dampen to the ground
There is a shrine inside me, pulsing softly, in inner view

I wander the pathways of my mind
And, kneeling at that secret shrine
I find you…
