Lost Enchantment (Poem)
The earth is flat
Locked in the prison cell of the imminent
Any sense of the transcendence is abandoned.
Deadening one’s senses
The imminent squeezes out all life beyond
Leaving existence devoid of authentic meaning.
The magic as vanished
Imprisoned in the lifeless box of rationality
Any hope of eternity disappears into the ether.
Disturbing one’s heart
Certainty forces out a desire for the inexplicable
Thoughts of the unknown are banished to a far-off land.
