Endless loops
of being
and non-being.

Where you begin
and I end
I do not know.

When I tear at you
I am but slicing me
into soul strips
that stretch themselves
on you to

Intertwining roots
that grow
into earth’s womb
in search of
the origin
of the darkness

into the
we journey.

Our abode lies there.

    I was teleported thru a cosmic journey, into innerspace, where 2 faceless aparitions were waltzing to the tunes of hardship and love. intrigued.

    “into earth’s womb
    in search of
    the origin
    of the darkness
    That is so beautiful, and says it all to me.
