Have we been blinded you and I

Have I stopped to breathe I and you

Have the multitude of spectacles

Looked up in to the mirror


What is this vast ground of the endless mind

The waves of the ocean bouncing back from you

The rocky cliffs called reason and logic

The deathly riddle like a serpent writhing


Have I gone over to a different alliance?

Adjacent to your cell but far away in your space

The way you see through your eyes

Cryptic as the Egyptian sphinx


what inner journey and inner unrest

pursues you like a hounded man

never to rest in the arms of an oasis

nor lay your head next to mine


have we shared a time you and I

have I just lived an illusion I and you

has the laughter merely echoed

in the giant unknowns of our time
