Varying Degrees of Existence

By Smiles

Through the cracks in reality
The subjective starts seeping
And nothing has meaning
Until you awaken

Where thought intersects tangible
Ethereal meets obscene
You will find infinite paths
Leading to answers
You don't have questions for

In between the paths
Lies the time it takes to reach the end
It's littered with intentions
And the things you should have said

It's slipping



Into the void

Through the cracks in reality
You may find yourself staring
Into the varying degrees of existence

    Thanks 13. Sometimes it's nice to get away from yourself.

    Be careful out there. There are things lurking about in my atmosphere that one should be wary of. Thank you Raheema. Hope you find your way home.

    I loved every word of this including the title. To me, it describes a dream and waking up from one. Going into my favorites! Thank for sharing.
