Death Valley

Death Valley

Leaving The Bardos

the star gate was at the top of the tower
as i climbed the spiral staircase
i knew i would surrender to the void
and fall forever
nonexistent and free, this the divine sleep
absurdity of human mind
never again forevermore, given to lessers
who never asked 'what for?'
hummingbird in the storm so light
flying for me, the big fall
flying for her, free fall and no dread
crawling on the floor again
towards the window my soul says
"i prefer life, but I just don't care"
if you want my demise, take the life
you lent me. this conversation is over
no seduction into the three bardos
my mandala made of sand
blows now through these prayers
just roll me up and break my back
and place me before the hungry bird

Beautiful and relatable, for me, in any case. Or so I felt. Thank you for sharing it.
