heavy -

a small weight on my chest

burrowing deeper until breath come harder

small -

the light leading the way

tunneled through the bleak night

light -

the self of dreams

teasing it's way into my mind

self -

a resilient figure

unknown to the world

resilient -

the disguised inner workings

of the one meant for more

disguised -

the comfort of the mask

shielding the world and wearer alike

comfort -

a far away notion

warm and inviting

far away -

a transcendent memory

of another time, another version of you

transcendent -

the heavy veil

surpassing this world and relishing in the next

sad poetry
